Re-cognition and Re-vision: Pushing the Boundaries of Your Poems [Jessica Jacobs and Nickole Brown]
Writers often draw a hard line between writing and revising. While the first is an act of joyful inspiration, the second is generally viewed as drudging perspiration. In this class, you?ll learn to infuse revision with the creative energy of your early drafts by focusing the revision process on specific elements of poetry such as tone, metaphor, imagery, form, and sound. This straightforward, pragmatic workshop will be most helpful to writers currently working on drafts of existing poems.
Please bring to class three double-spaced printed copies of one short poem (less than one page) you would like to revise.
