Introduction to Poetry: A Generative Workshop with Amy Lawless
This class is grounded in two basic functions: to generate new poems through prompts and expectation-challenging exercises, and to workshop them. A discussion of narrative, mechanics, forms, and the music of language will anchor the class.
Amy Lawless is the author of two books of poetry, My Dead and Noctis Licentia. She grew up in Boston and currently lives in New York City, where she was a 2011 NYFA Fellow in poetry.
