The Published Poem

Class Description

In this advanced class, students will put their poems through the paces in order to submit them for publication at the seminar's end. Each class we'll discuss a published poet's revisions and perform an intensive workshop dedicated to multiple revisions of the same poem. We'll pay special attention to how poems manage and engage readers' expectations. We'll also dedicate the final class to a discussion of the questions and problems of publication. Our class will be a testing ground of alternatives and possibilities, and so will our poems. Students should bring one nearly finished poem to the first class.

NOTE: This class will not take place on Memorial Day, May 26th.

Applications for this class have closed. You will hear from the reading committee within a week.

Scholarships Format/Location

Thanks to the excellent literary citizenship of our donors, scholarships are available for all GrubStreet classes. To apply, click the gray "APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIP" button. In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class. Please await our scholarship committee's decision before registering for the class. We cannot hold spots in classes, so the sooner you apply, the better.
