Revision by Poetry’s Periodic Table of the Elements [Kim Stafford]
Intermediate | Title, first line, line break, voiced cadence, word-field, the turn . . . the opportunity for special effects is present in the decisions a writer makes with each element. All are at work no matter how long or short the poem may be, or what kind of poem it is—haiku to lyric to epic. Bring your three most promising poems- in-process, and we will work through ways to make them more like what they want to be. This will not be a critique session, but a workshop in generative revision.
