To write great poetry, youve got to read great poetry! Following the format of university graduate programs in poetry, this three-week intensive course offers both. In 3 Saturday workshop sessions, a unique and elegant set of tools and techniques are presented and practiced, with group exercises and discussion. And in 3 Sunday seminar sessions, you will quickly deepen in poetic understanding and facility with talks based on guided reading assignments. No prior experience is needed for this course.
Saturdays 7-9pm and Sundays noon-2pm three consecutive weekends: December 1-2, 8-9 and 15-16, 2018
