“Too often we impose a plan on a poem, and end up circling what it's really trying to express. In this workshop we'll learn to trust what the poem itself knows, and reveal the resonance that can help transform it into stronger writing. Please bring a poem you've been struggling with, and be prepared to approach it in a brave new way.
This workshop has a maximum participation of 15 registrants. Please register here.
