The Force of Poetry

Monday, January 21, 2019 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

In this eight-week workshop, intermediate and advanced poets will concentrate on reading, writing, and critiquing poetry. Each class session will include a brief discussion of selected contemporary poems, an in-class writing prompt, and workshopping every participant’s poem. Specific exercises will be given to free the imagination, and quiet the inner censor. Writers will explore formal considerations, stylistic choices, and those moments when a poem catches its own voice. By the end of the class, participants will have produced seven original poems and one revision, and will have refined their poetic voice. Please bring 15 copies of a poem you love (not your own) to the first session, as well as 15 copies of one of your own. Note: No meeting on February 11.
