Advanced Poetry Workshop

Advanced | In this inclusive, welcoming workshop, we will explore and experiment with innovative and traditional group feedback methods with the intended outcome of creating poems that meet each workshop member’s criteria for excellence in myriad aspects, including clarity, image, sonic devices, figurative language, and subversion of the ordinary in favor of the unexpected. We will also analyze and discuss poems we admire and use our time together to generate new work. Prerequisite: 3-4 poems submitted to instructor.

Registration is by application only. Please submit an application here. The application will open August 17th.
