Advanced Poetry Workshop - Remote!
This workshop is for advanced poets who want to develop new content and deepen their craft. We’ll explore the building blocks of poetry: language, the line, poetic forms, narrative and lyric elements, and what we need to do to build the life of the poem. We'll see how what we learn manifests in our own work and that of accomplished mentor poets. We’ll write and revise ten poems and discuss making work public via readings and various types of publications. Poets whose works we explore may include Wanda Coleman, Paul Celan, Bhanu Kapil, Arthur Rimbaud, Patricia Lockwood, Walt Whitman, Claudia Rankine, Sherwin Bitsui, Kenneth Patchen, Gloria Anzaldua, and more. This class is by submission only and previous workshop experience is essential. Space is limited to nine poets.
This application deadline is Monday, January 4th.
The payment deadline for admitted students is Monday, January 11th.
This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
