Spring Poetry Studio
"I am limited by what my hand can do." - Anaïs Duplan
In this class we will experiment with new poetic forms and techniques. Over the course of five weeks we will strengthen our work and take risks in our writing. Through a combination of in-class writing exercises, workshops, and discussion of outside poems, we will develop reading and writing practices that will make us more attentive, generative, and generous poets. Participants will be expected to read three short poems and hand in one new poem each week. This poetry workshop welcomes poets of all experiences. Please bring something to write with and paper.
