8-Week: Intermediate/Advanced Poetry Workshop (Zoom)

$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 meeting will include some in-class writing as well as discussion about the nature and value of poetry. Additionally, writers will be asked to read from chapters in Kim Addonizio’s Ordinary Genius between classes to facilitate reflection on their own writing practice. The majority of class time will be spent workshopping poems by participants that are distributed ahead of each class. Participants are expected to participate as much in these critiques as their own poems, as such conversations foster continued curiosity and critical analysis of our own individual approaches to poetics.

Required Text: Ordinary Genius, by Kim Addonizio

Prerequisite: Writers in this course should be intermediate or advanced poets who've taken at least one or more rounds of the intro workshop or the equivalent.
