Together we’ll work on your poems inside and out in hands-on, line by line discussion of at least three poems from each participant. To shape our conversation and study, bring three relatively short poems-in-progress: a confessional or autobiographical poem; an erotic, social, collective, or political poem; a nature poem. One focused on self, one about “the other” or others, and one whose concern is less with people and more with nature or a natural entity. The categories are general, so don’t worry. During the week I’ll add exercises, prompts for writing and strategies for revision, and bring poems as examples—old and contemporary, canonical and surprising.
