Workshop Description 


This will be a generative class. We’ll read four poets on Monday, and then each day thereafter students will bring to class a poem, in imitation. By the end of the week, I promise you you’ll have four of the best poems you’ve ever written and a set of skills you otherwise wouldn’t have.


ALAN SHAPIRO has published twelve books of poetry, most recently Life Pig and Reel to Reel, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. His Night of the Republic, was a finalist for both the International Griffith Prize and the National Book Award.
