Whether you're looking to experiment, produce new works for a collection, or work on revisions, this workshop offers the opportunity to broaden and deepen your knowledge of poetry. Each week, you will study the craft and vision of contemporary poets and write your own poems to be workshopped the following week. This class will allow you to break old habits, play with unconventional forms, and, most importantly, leave the course with both fresh and revised drafts of many poems. Authors discussed in this class may include Lucille Clifton, Tyree Daye, Kim Addonizio, Brenda Shaughnessy, Li-Young Lee, Ocean Vuong and others.

Please note: Class will not meet on July 7th.
