Course Description

This workshop invites practicing poets, old and new, to explore craft and hone their skills. We open the poet’s box of craft tools to reveal ways to enhance the poems you bring in to revise. We will read, looking empathically and critically at each poem. With collective insight, we will explore strategies for revision, with an eye for music, voice, trope, diction, and how the poem engages a reader from the first word to the last. Opening the toolbox, an array of craft options will be offered, boosting confidence and encouraging experimentation. There will be supplementary handouts on themes, forms, and elements of the poem, which can be used as inspiration for new work. Poems are shared in an environment of curiosity and respect, with an eye to realizing each poem’s unique potential. Writing Active Participation
