“Brevity is the soul of wit,” Shakespeare wrote, and to illustrate the point, here is a very brief poem by A.R. Ammons, titled "Their Sex Life": "One failure on/ Top of another." The unforgettable image, the delight in the ordinary, the quick strike that makes the mind leap: in this two-day intensive, we’ll explore these and many other charms of short poems and try our hands at writing some ourselves.
