Writing Under the Influence: Creative Imitation

Alan Shapiro WEEK 7: July 24 to July 29 TUITION: $725 WORKSHOP: 9AM-1PM DISCIPLINE: Poetry INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED ON-SITE HOUSING AVAILABLE

This will be a generative class. We’ll read four poets on Monday (yet to be determined) 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.
