Poetry II

This class will build upon craft learned in Poetry I. Through more intensive readings, prompts, discussions, and workshops of your poems, we will further develop our poetic technique. While Poetry I is aimed at introducing you to the vast creative toolbox available to any poet, the goal of Poetry II is to explore in more detail those craft elements that are most often at play in your own growing body of work.

A recipient of the Pushcart Prize, her poems, essays, and short stories have appeared in such publications as American Poetry Review, Orion, West Branch, and Prairie Schooner. In 2007 Keetje completed her tenure as the Margery Davis Boyden Wilderness Writing Resident, which provided her with seven months of solitude in Oregon's Rogue River Valley. She used her time there to complete work on her first book, Beautiful in the Mouth, which was awarded the 2009 A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize and was published by BOA Editions. Her second book, The Keys to the Jail, was published by BOA Editions in 2014.

She is currently at work on a memoir, a novel, and a third collection of poetry.
