This is Just to Say: What We Bring: How Poets Use Their World A Poetry Workshop Facilitated by William May
Saturday, June 1st, 2019 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Old School Square Crest Theatre Classroom #6  (Upstairs) 51 N. Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach

In this class, participants will look at how diverse poets have used references to other works, concepts and contexts from the world, imagery, sound and various tools of craft to deploy meanings that the reader will recognize and used these to create a context that allows the reader to gain a deeper understanding and a new perspective.  Students will directly apply these ideas through a variety of exercises exploring the ways they can bring such specific dimensions of the world into their poems while exploring ways of using these tools to communicate concepts and experiences more deeply to readers. Facilitator William May is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, and the MFA program in Creative Writing at UNC-Greensboro, as well as studying poetry and writing internationally.  He has studied with poets including Thomas Lux, Billy Collins, Stanley Plumly, Victoria Redel, and Vijay Seshadri. $10 per person
