Okay. Wait. Let Me Rephrase This. With Laure-Anne Bosselaar

The focus of this workshop will be on revision: how can we acquire the tools we need to revise our poems on our own? Many aspiring and even experienced poets find it challenging to revise on their own, without the help of a workshop or mentor. Participants will learn how to strengthen and hone their revision skills—systematically and in depth— and address all the elements of a poem: form, syntax, tone, metaphor, images, line-breaks, opening and closings, to name a few. Each student in this workshop should have twelve 4 x 6 index cards ready for the first workshop meeting.
