Demystifying the Line Break

Whether we break our lines deliberately or haphazardly, the right margin has enormous effects on the way our poems move, mean, and sing. By investigating a wide variety of examples and conducting experiments on our own poems, we’ll seek to understand the effect of our line-break choices and to expand our range of possibilities. Bring several poems-in-progress and a laptop, if you can.
