Rewriting With Abandon: The Art of Revision with Sharon Dolin

“Poems are never finished, merely abandoned,” wrote Paul Valéry. How do we take those abandoned drafts, our stuck poems, and re-enter them with fresh verve? Each session we discuss procedures and strategies for revising our poems, do short in-class revision exercises, discuss some published works, before turning to workshop as a group student poems. This class is an invitation to play and radically re-visit poems-in-progress.

Inherent Logics: From One Genre to Another with Douglas A. Martin

In this seminar we’ll work outside of and between forms and search for logics poetic or otherwise in our fledgling pieces, letting what emerges from things currently tangled, broken or uncollected be our guide toward form. We will assess efforts weekly and leave each class with a new set of keys to attempt to turn. And if we wind up with something sounding more like it wants to be an essay, we will hear where and how it sings to tune or compose anew.
