From Poem(s) to Manuscript
Intermediate | How do you know when you’re ready to put together a poetry manuscript—and where do you start? In this two-session weekend class, we’ll approach manuscript-making from the inside out, using curiosity and serious play to listen in on what our poems have to say to each other, then exploring techniques for writing and revising with a manuscript in mind.
