Summer Poetry Workshop III

This new, intermediate-level, four-week workshop will explore the craft of poetry through the lens of established contemporary poets, using deep discussion of their work as inspiration for poetic experimentation.

The class will include generative writing prompts, close readings of poems, and generous feedback and attention in a relaxed, supportive online environment.
