Pushing It: You’ve Written the Poem, Now What?
Date: Saturday 24 April 2010
If we’re pushing it, we’re considering questions such as these: How can we take a poem further, refusing to accept easy endings or standard word choices? How can we raise the stakes for a poem, putting more of ourselves on the line? How can we see our poems in larger contexts beyond the discrete, single-page lyric? How can we allow the poem to escape our intentions? How, in general, can we imagine new ways to understand what we do and how we do it?
Our session will consider your poems and a few samples I’ll bring along. Expect some surprises, some bluntness, some fun. Expect to be pushed.
Please submit a two page sample of your work (typed on 8 ½ x 11 paper) to the SWG office by 4:30 p.m. on Friday 16 April 2010.
