An Intense Week of Writing for Poets

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.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
