Summer
Level: 
1-Week Intensive

Improve your poems by considering the art more fully, from the inside out. Our goal will be to find new sources for our poems. What inspires us to write? How can we cultivate those energies while discovering new opportunities for our poems? Explore the formal elements of poetry—action, voice, sentence, phrase, line, sound, and metaphor—that offer new and surprising sources for our poems. Ours will be a collegial and supportive workshop environment, open to experienced writers and to beginners.

LIVE TIME: 12pm-2pm EST.
