Poems from Poems

In this intensely generative workshop we’ll deep-dive into our obsessive subjects, taking risks and experimenting to find the most vibrant and innovative language possible for our own work. Using a current poem-in-progress as a starting point, we’ll work (and play) to expand our ideas of what might be possible in poems. Where does the language come alive? How can we generate fresh heat and intensity to animate our work? How might one poem seed an entire series or sequence of poems constellating around a single (central) subject? Please bring a recent poem or two that feel promising but unfinished and come ready to expand and explore.

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.
