Online: Advanced Poetry Workshop
Are you a writer looking to level up your poetry? Delve deep into contemporary poetry in this class designed for advanced writers. We will engage formalistic modes to transcend boundaries in our work, and even invent forms together. We will hone in on the nuances of literary device, and discuss the usage of key elements of the genre. Students will be guided in experimentation to test the limits of language and its combinations. Students will strengthen their poetic muscles not just from careful crafting, but from obsessive revision and authorial reflection. We will free write in class and consider work by published poets, and students’ creative work will be discussed constructively in a workshop format. Come with pen, paper, and a readiness to grow!
This class will be held online, via Zoom.
