Recently, what excites me is that not-knowing, early stage of a poem. This isn’t to say my intentions and impulses are bad—it’s good to be aware of where I start—but sometimes what I think is best for a poem needs to take a backseat to what makes poetry different from any other genre: prioritizing language play. In this generative workshop, I’ll provide various prompts and ample time to write. We will also read work from contemporary poets, and briefly discuss how these poems are working before we write based on each of those poems. Prerequisite: general knowledge of the craft of poetry.

The location of this class is to be determined based on attendance.
