This workshop will focus on incorporating autobiographical material into poetry with an emphasis on each participant’s writing. Students will read from a wide selection of poems and generate poems from notebooks, in-class writing, photographs and various other starting points that help evoke memories and spark the imagination.

Eléna Rivera is the author of the poetry collections The Perforated Map and Remembrance of Things Plastic. She won the 2010 Robert Fagles prize in translation for The Rest of the Voyage by Bernard Noël and teaches at NYU and Bard College.
