Alan Shapiro Writing Under the Influence: Creative Imitation July 28 to August 2, 2019 Tuition: $750 Workshop: 9am-1pm Discipline: Poetry OPEN TO ALL On-site Housing NOT Available - Off-site Housing Options

This workshop is part of our Poetry Festival.

This will be a generative class. We’ll read four poets on Monday, and then each day thereafter students will bring to class a poem, in imitation. By the end of the week, I promise you you’ll have four of the best poems you’ve ever written and a set of skills you otherwise wouldn’t have.
