1-Week Intensive

This one-week, generative workshop will explore how, when, and why to incorporate external voices, sources, and ideas into your poetic projects. When might a poet utilize external material in order to cultivate a unique persona on the page? As a strategy of argumentation? As a method of association? As a means of refining style and voice? You will read and write every day, and you will come away from this workshop with both a batch of new poems and a concrete set of tools and considerations to take forward with you into future endeavors. At the end of the week, each student will have an individual consultation, by video chat or phone, to discuss their current work and future projects.
