In this workshop, participants learn how to write bright, specific, ambitious poems that electrify the page. Each workshop leads off with a guided close reading of contemporary poets. Bring in drafts of 1-2 pages for three of the six sessions, each of which will receive written feedback from the instructor. Missing sessions is fine; advance notice is appreciated. Bring fifteen copies of a draft to the first class.
