In this workshop you’ll meet a group of fellow poet-pilgrims interested in the strategies and techniques to take poem drafts to the next level — or to that strange new place. We’ll read a few poems by famous poets, with the idea that we can always incorporate the examples we find most exciting and useful into our own work. We’ll also experiment with fun and easy in-class writing exercises to generate new work. Our mission will be learning how to cultivate a sense of mystery and discovery in our poems.
Come prepared to write, and bring two poems in progress, with copies, to share with the group. Leave with the tools and enthusiasm that will keep you writing well beyond our workshop.
