LIVE via ZOOM: 4-6pm (Eastern)
Our week together will focus on how we can help our readers navigate our poems through choices we make regarding stanza formation, line endings, punctuation, titling, syntax, diction, inflection, etc. Each member will present their own poems for discussion. The workshop will run at least 2 hours or up to 3 hours, depending on the size of the group. Discussions and exercises will focus on revision strategies of the poems under discussion and strategies to generate new work as well.
