Intermediate Poetry Workshop: Your Craft

Intermediate. We will delve into specific elements of craft with the goal of learning more about who we are as poets. This class includes intensive readings, prompts, discussions, and workshops. We will explore concepts such as Lorca’s duende, Bly’s deep image, and Sharif’s poetics of proximity. This workshop seeks to further develop, critique, and strengthen long-term poetic endeavors. When someone asks us the question “what do you write about?” (and they always will), how will we respond?
