There comes a point in nearly every poem I write where I get trapped in the poem I’ve built. What I mean is, it becomes difficult to consider other possibilities because I’ve whittled the poem down one thing. This is where radical revision techniques come into play. In this workshop, each student will bring in two of their own poems and apply various revision techniques as a way to understand the poem more clearly or from different angles. The objective isn’t so much about getting a “better” poem, but about recognizing our writerly obsessions and concerns. Prerequisite: general knowledge of the craft of poetry.
The location of this class is to be determined based on attendance.
