What’s a poem, after all? Is it how you say something, or how you see it? Poems are renderings of closely observed experience, idea, or image using language that is as exact, fresh, and evocative as possible. They make the everyday extraordinary. They mean more than they say. This workshop offers new and developing poets a forum for informed listening, shared insights, and friendly feedback. A weekly writing exercise will be suggested, and participants may bring one poem each week for discussion. Lecture (plus questions). Facilitated Discussion. Writing. Field Trip(s).
