Sense, Vision, Insight, Form
Bowery Poetry presents


a new, five-week course
of poetry writing & discussion
with Andrew Singer

Sundays noon-2pm  five consecutive weeks:
November 17 & 24 + December 1, 8 & 15, 2019


Over 5 consecutive Sundays, we will explore a unique and elegant set of tools and techniques for quickly deepening in poetic understanding and facility.

No prior experience is needed! These workshop sessions present a series of group exercises for helping poets of all styles refine their work, and discover and explore a new way of approaching poetry.

To write poetry well, you should also read great poetry! Poems for reading and discussion this time will be selected from among these poets: Emily Brontë, Robert Browning, Thomas Hardy, Ezra Pound, H.D., Hart Crane, W. H. Auden and Derek Walcott.


Instructor bio: Andrew Singer is a writer and artist residing in Manhattan. He directs Trafika Europe (https://trafikaeurope.org), showcasing new literature in English translation from the 47 countries of Council of Europe. He has mentored with Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott for an MA in Writing Poetry, and has taught university Creative Writing, Literary Translation, and seminars in European and Anglo-American poetry and fiction most recently at Penn State University, and across Europe. He was previously a first reader in poetry for Partisan Review. His poetry and critical essays appear in such publications as World Literature Today, Fulcrum, Levure littéraire, Emanations, Pilvax, StAnza, and Open Letters Monthly. He believes all things begin and end in wonder.


Praise for previous offerings of "Sense, Vision, Insight, Form" include the following:

Andrew's poetry workshop was a master-class in immediacy. It introduced us to a way of observing / writing that pushed us beyond preconceptions and habitual responses into the living essence of the moment ~ Kathy Tiernan, Author

I felt inspired by being asked not only to describe a subject strictly faithfully, but wait till it 'speaks' and tells us about itself. Singer's unique method of poetry teaching fits so well with both Ben Okri's vision of the academies of the future in his Plato's Dream, and with neuroscientist Ian McGilchrist's emphasis of the incomparable importance of the right hemisphere in his groundbreaking book, The Master and his Emissary. I look forward to the next masterclass with Andrew! ~ Narda Azaria Dalgleish, Experimental filmmaker, Poet

Everything Andrew said during this class was exciting and useful. He gave us concrete tools to see the beauty of poetry in everything, and to know the difference between keeping the integrity of a poetic object and merely abstracting it or projecting onto it. I left the class newly inspired to write, with both the confidence that I will now write more and better poetry, and a clear vision for how I will go about it. - Olivia McGill

"I am a more careful observer of my surroundings and their poetic potential after taking Andrew Singer's excellent workshop... The analysis of form was extremely helpful as well..." - Jane Pearson
