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 Toi Dericotte, Lucille Clifton, Malcolm Tariq, Li Young Lee, Sharon Olds and Morgan Parker,  class is by submission only and previous workshop experience is essential. Space is limited to nine poets.
