Poetry Intensive with Simon Armitage
Friday, October 5, 7:00pm-10:00pm
Saturday, October 6, 12:00noon-5:00pm
Leading British poet Simon Armitage offers you the chance to step outside of the American poetic paradigm, while asking some central questions that transcend all national boundaries: How do poems work? What do they hope to achieve? The workshop will include close readings of recent poetry from both sides of the pond and the opportunity to put these ideas into practice with focused writing exercises.
