According to W. H. Auden, a poet feels most like a poet when making the last revision to a new poem. Yet so many times we get stuck in an early draft of a poem and don’t know how to proceed. How can we enter and re-imagine the poem, both formally and thematically? In this hands-on workshop dedicated to the art of revision, students will learn a variety of techniques and approaches for turning the inert draft into a poem that breathes and sings.
