This will be a workshop for those who have committed themselves to the work of both reading and writing poetry. Within it we will make new work in response to existing forms, as well as revise older, unfinished work in a collaborative workshop setting. Our class will examine what strong poetry does — and also what it still might do. As in any workshop setting, we will learn as much from the successes and failures of others’ work as we do from our own experiments. Previous workshop experience necessary.
