For poets at every stage, this workshop is about honing your poetic range. Participants will chart the literary structure of various poetry collections that are founded on a particular theme, polyvocality, or both. Exploring their own poetic range through a number of generative writing exercises, participants will write persona poems, practice tracing prompts, respond to assemblage art, and create their own poetic form for the other participants to try. 

Varying syntax will be encouraged throughout.

Participants will have the opportunity to request feedback on their writing and engage in fresh activities, intended to inspire lasting connections and new work.

Four Mondays: May 8, 15, 22, and 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. Online ET
