This very interactive workshop focuses on how to strengthen and hone your revision skills by systematically and individually addressing all the elements of a poem including structure, tone, line-breaks, form, syntax, sounds, and more. I will also give prompts or exercises to do during the week or later at home. Mostly, this workshop should be inspiring, motivating and fun – so bring your sense of humor, imagination and three poems that need work. Please also bring a poem, not written by you, that you particularly love.
Please bring fifteen 5 x 8 index cards & 17 copies of your poems.
