Before this intensive workshop for poets at any stage of poetic development, students will submit 3-5 poems and we will spend the week in a mixture of critique, discussion of interesting and recent poetry, and writing new poems. We will tackle difficulties and try to find ways to write poems that are fresh and original, that show mastery and struggle, are built to last, are brave, and are filled with passion and emotion and feeling.
Ed Skoog is the author of two books of poems, Rough Day and Mister Skylight, both published by Copper Canyon Press. His poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, The Paris Review, Poetry, Poetry Northwest, and elsewhere. He has been writer-in-residence at the Hugo House and George Washington University and a visiting professor at the University of Montana.
