Composing and revising are entangled beings and don’t want to be separated. They feed knowledge to each other, connected by the underground network of your psyche. Each session, you’ll generate a new poem while posing revision provocations to poems generated in previous weeks. Writing and revising will occur in tandem, practicing putting on different hats within one writing session. You’ll create six poems and learn creative tools to bring to further poetic explosions. Bring a poem to the first class and we'll get started right away.
