Poet, Translator, Editor
This workshop will begin with a very short brainstorming exercise to help you identify or refine subjects you’d like to address in poems, including “difficult” subjects you may have been anxious or uncomfortable about pursuing. The remainder of the three-hour session will offer you a handful of poetic strategies, each including a brief discussion of several published poems and a prompt that will help to get you started on a poem of your own, perhaps drawing on the one of the subjects you’ve just defined. You’ll have 5-10 minutes to explore each strategy, each of which will give you the beginning of a poem you might finish at home.
