Wait… Let Me Rephrase This With Laure-Anne Bosselaar

Many poets find it challenging to revise their work without the help of a workshop group or mentor. This inter-active workshop will focus on how can we acquire the tools we need to revise poems on our own. We’ll work on strengthening those new skills which will — systematically and in depth — address all the elements of a poem: form, syntax, tone, metaphor, line-breaks, etc. This interactive workshop will be fun, so do bring your sense of humor. Also bring 3 poems (no more than 1 page in 12pt font) that you feel are “stuck.”  I will give prompts for those who prefer to work on new poems. Important: Please bring twenty 5 x 8 index cards.
