Listening To What The Poem Wants To Say: A Poetry Workshop with Maxine Scates|
Do you decide what to write before you write or do you begin with only an impulse and follow where the poem leads? Are there subjects you know you avoid? Are there
subjects you return to again and again? In this workshop, we'll discuss your writing process, most particularly the early stages of writing a poem. I'll suggest ways in which
you can become a better listener when it comes to hearing what your poems want to say, and I'll provide you with prompts that give you the opportunity to respond to our
discussion. If time permits, you'll also have a chance share your responses.
Maxine Scates is a Pushcart Prize winner and the author of three collections of poetry: Toluca Street (1989), Black Loam (2005), and, most recently, Undone (2011). Her work has appeared in many notable literary journals, including Crazyhorse, the American Poetry Review, Ploughshares, and the Missouri Review.
