Price: 
$125 (10% off for members)

This workshop is for those who already feel comfortable sharing their poetry in a workshop setting, and who expect serious critique. Participants should bring a recent poem to the first session, during which they will be given an array of exercises and suggestions to start the poem-a-day process. From then on, each participant should bring a new poem to every class meeting. The workshop is designed to help get your creative juices flowing, to encourage you to explore some of the many choices of form and language available to you as a poet, and to allow you to take chances with your work. We will also explore strategies for revision.
