The Ars Poetica and the Development of a Personal Vision [Vievee Francis]

Intermediate | How do our attitudes, backgrounds, and experiences inform the way we think about writing? If our personal narratives shift, how does that impact our approach to the poem? We will discuss how the conscious questioning of our thoughts and feelings about poetry can “twig by twig” (as Archibald MacLeish notes in his poem, “Ars Poetica”) move us toward a comprehensive and sustainable personal vision for our work.
