Transformation. How do we achieve this in writing a poem?  We will meet for 5 days, and each day we will invite transformative poets and poems into our rooms: We will read poets  who give close attention to one thing , poets  who praise ( and praise what might not seem praise-able) , poets  who dream and imagine, poets  who leap ( into--- who knows where?).

You might be a beginner.  If so, welcome! You might be an experienced poet.  If so, welcome! This week is offered to anyone who wants to write  new poems and be changed. 

NOTE: As this workshop fills quickly with a long waitlist, Marie has requested that students who have taken her workshop within the past five years (2016-2021) refrain from registering so that new students may have the opportunity to work with her. Thank you.

LIVE TIME: 12pm-2pm EST.
