Workshop Description 

In this workshop we will examine three or four poetry collections that model unique approaches to craft. This workshop will be generative in the sense that we will practice mining these collections for ideas, lessons on craft, and we will apply those ideas to new work or to drafts of poems that may be otherwise stalled or stale.
