No matter their faith or doubt, most poets feel summoned to explore the ways human lives relate to the spiritual. Through readings of contemporary poets with a range of spiritual outlooks and inquiries, workshop participants will focus on making new poems, seeking to discover spirit through the stuff of the world.

David Groff's poetry collection Clay won the Louise Bogan Award, selected by Michael Waters, and was published in 2013. His book Theory of Devolution was chosen by Mark Doty for the National Poetry Series. Co-editor of the anthologies Persistent Voices: Poetry by Writers Lost to AIDS and Who’s Yer Daddy?: Gay Writers Celebrate Their Mentors and Forerunners, he is an independent book editor and teaches in the City College of New York MFA creative writing program.
