Workshop Description 

We will spend the week looking at the work of three poets, which will be waiting for you in Provincetown, and looking together at poems by the participants. Often the best and most surprising inspirations for revision and for new poems come from looking and reading. Together we’ll give ourselves a figurative shake or two, and see what new directions our poems take us in.

Please bring 10 copies of 2 or 3 of your own poems you would like to discuss.
And also bring 1 poem you have recently read and liked.
