It's not too late to sign up for my seminar on "The Poem and the Idea." The registration deadline is June 11. I'm also going to be teaching a 10-week workshop this summer. Here's all the info:
10 Weeks, 10 Poems, 10 Questions
10 Wednesdays, 7-10 pm. Begins June 23rd.
This 10-week workshop offers the opportunity to broaden and deepen your knowledge of poetry while challenging your writing skills and comfort zone. We will study the craft and vision of contemporary poets and write poems to be workshopped in class. Each week, writers will ask themselves a question that forces them to reflect on their work and their relationship to it (such as, "Do my poems take risks?" and "What traditions do my poems build on?"). These questions will frame the discussion. This class will allow you to break old habits, find new influences, and, most importantly, leave the course with both fresh and revised drafts of many poems.
Type: Full-length Workshop
Price: $455.00/$430.00 members
Registration Deadline: Thursday, June 17, 2010
