The Writing on the Wall
What kind of walls do we build around our poems? Are these walls helpful, or do they hinder the possibilities of a poem? In this workshop, participants will discuss how useful it can be to expand a “finished” poem and how “knocking down walls” can help writers expand their craft skills, as well as how formal constraints and other “walls” can actually help creativity flourish during the writing process.
Freesia McKee is author of the chapbook How Distant the City, and her work has appeared in Cream City Review, The Feminist Wire, Painted Bride Quarterly, and Gertrude among others, and she is the winner of the 2018 Patricia Goedicke Prize in Poetry.
