Craft & Voice With Ilya Kaminsky

In this workshop, we will talk about poems from around the world and also discuss your own work. Everyone will receive a line-by-line reading of their poetry. The details, images and sounds, the aspects of line, linebreak, metaphor, and others tools of our craft will be discussed in depth. The focus here is on you: how can your work grow, develop. What tools of poetic craft might best fit your voice? The students should bring 17 copies of one of their poems to the first class meeting.
