Poetry Workshop

This is a course from a previous year. View the current courses

We will focus on reading and writing poems with the understanding that the poem is a made object. To that end, we’ll think a lot about strategies into and through and out of poems—syntax, sentence-making, line-making and, of course, music. What is our responsibility to the poem and in the poem will be questions engaged in the workshop.
