8-Week: Advanced Poetry Workshop

$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

This course gives experienced poets a community of inquiry in which to workshop poems and consider issues in contemporary poetry. We'll consider each author’s poems individually while also taking a broader view: How do the poet’s writings fit together toward a possible manuscript? What attitudes and beliefs about poetry inform this poetry? Each class meeting will include some in-class writing as well as discussion about the nature and value of poetry. 

Ideal for those with solid experience reading, writing, and critiquing poetry in a workshop. 

Prerequisite: One intermediate or advanced class or permission from the instructor. To apply, please email a writing sample (3 to 5 poems) and a brief description of your workshop history to [email protected].
