Advanced Weeklong Poetry Workshop: Invitations, Inventions, Inventories, and Turnstiles with Jane Hirshfield

$925.00 Members
$985.00 Non-members

Over the course of this generative workshop, we’ll explore the palette energies of thought, feeling, curiosity, fearlessness, connection, music, and some central strategies of language by which poems enter the world and find new expansions of leap, engagement, and meaning. The goal is to experiment, to come away from the week with a set of poem-starts (or finished poems) that will open into new paths of writing. You'll also try modes of making that might not have been otherwise found, yet lead to what are distinctly and irreplaceably your own words, intimate to this very moment of your own life. Bring five poems (not by you, no longer than one page at most) that take your breath away; a notebook or laptop for writing; the desire for reinvention and fresh discovery.  Accepted participants will submit 1-2 poems by noon (MST) on May 11, and will leave the workshop with multiple drafts to develop. Participants will have the opportunity to schedule a meeting with Hirshfield during the week of class.

Applications for Lit Fest advanced workshops close on March 14 and can be found here. Learn more about Lit Fest Advanced Workshops here. Accepted writers will be given the password to register for the workshop in late March.
