Vision & Revision – LIVE
August 15 to August 19, 2022
Class Size: 2
Level: virtual LIVE 1 week workshop
LIVE TIME: 10am-12pm EST.
In this workshop we will look at poems generated by prompts I share with you that are designed to extend your reach, awareness of structure and the tools available to you as poets. The prompts will be based on poems I bring into class for us to consider. We will also look at poems you’ve written previous to your experience in our workshop (that is, if you choose this option). I mean for this workshop to fit a variety of participants’ needs–there’s no one-size-fits-all approach and I’d like to find out where you are with your work and support your growth as an artist from that position. Everyone–from beginners to writers farther along in their creative process–is entirely welcome.
