This workshop involves reading, writing, and debate about the love poem. The sonnet form, traditionally focused on love, will provide a starting point for in-class writing exercises.
This is a workshop for poets who are looking to enrich and enliven their writing practice, creating new and expansive possibilities for the poem.
According to W. H. Auden, a poet feels most like a poet when making the last revision to a new poem. Yet so many times we get stuck in an early draft of a poem and don’t know how to proceed.
