Generative Revision Intensive [Bill Carty]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | Toni Morrison has said that “as a writer, a failure is just information,” and revision is recognition of past failure. In this class, we’ll study how to improve our writing through utilizing a process of “conscious” revision, where the writing process itself becomes part of the work. We’ll look at the poems of and strategies used by poets such as Bhanu Kapil, Matthew Rohrer, Terrance Hayes, Wallace Stevens, and Emily Dickinson to refine old work and generate new ideas.
