Creating Your Book-Length Manuscript: Theme, Order, and Revision (ZOOM)

Intermediate/Advanced | We will explore the recurring images and motifs in your poems, looking toward the development of a chapbook or book-length manuscript. Order is more than merely a device or afterthought of one’s work. The instructor will provide exercises and strategies to find umbrella themes, write new material, develop existing personae, and delete chaff with the goal of finding your unique voice. We’ll utilize peer review and study of books by your favorite poets. Bring fifty pages, including previously published poems.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
