Discovering Poetic Voice

All Levels | All poets write with influence: what we read, conversations, the interests of the world around us—each serves as an outside influence. The voice is the inside influence. To make a poem truly good, the voice must rise through the fray, wearing those other words like a coat but still allowing the voiced body to be visible, heard. In this generative class, we’ll read, write, and workshop—practicing talk, observation, and listening—to create poems that speak with our own poetic voice.
