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. We'll be looking at work by Natalie Scenters-Zapico, Lucille Clifton, Jericho Brown, Ilya Kaminsky, Robert Hayden, Terrance Hayes and more.
