Poetry Workshop

Discuss your poems and those of your peers. We will hone our skills and learn and practice the most helpful ways to approach creative work. In addition to your own poetry, we will look closely at poems by a group of contemporary poets. We will examine the craft, form, voice, and style in these poems and consider the aesthetic choices poets make. Be prepared to give and receive constructive criticism and feedback.
