Summer Workshop Program 2023
Often the best, most surprising inspirations for revision comes from close readings of poems new to us. Together we’ll look at the work of several poets and write new poems. Every day! We’ll give ourselves and our writing a figurative shake or two, talk about each others’ works, we’ll keep going, and see poems in new ways.
