Workshop Description 

This workshop is part of our Poetry Festival.

 

Poetry is a conversation we have with ourselves by having it in front of others. With this idea in mind, this class will utilize daily generative writing exercises, class discussion of exemplary work by established writers, and daily workshop sessions of student poems to refine and sharpen students’ poetic tools and help bring submitted poems to finished form.
