Class Description

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 respond to a prompt given in-class. You will share two poems a week, one from the in-class writing exercise and something else you’ve revised at home. This class will allow you to break old habits. It will give you space to play with forms both conventional and unconventional from aubade to zuihitsu. And, most importantly, you will leave the course with both fresh and revised drafts of many poems! We'll be looking at work by Layli Long Soldier, Don Mee Choi, Naomi Replansky, Kimiko Hahn, Wanda Coleman, Juliana Spahr, and Ross Gay.
