The Poems Only You Can Write
The most powerful poems are sui generis—and each of us has aspects of our work that are like no one else's. We'll work together to explore and expand the terrain of our work through the lenses of our personal aesthetic(s) and obsessions. We'll practice multiple ways of using these factors to inspire new directions, generate new work, offer more productive and authentic feedback, and ultimately help you create the compelling, distinctive poems that only you can write.
