4-Week Workshop
It can be easy to fall into a poetic rut.  To feel stuck in routine or less than terrified (don't we all want to be a little terrified by our poems?) by what we put on the page.  This four-week course will focus on exercises that will open new ideas, techniques, and associations in your poems and, in doing so, become more daring, more charged, more potent.  We will comment on each other's poems, but we'll focus more on making than honing.
