“Poems are never finished, merely abandoned,” wrote Paul Valéry. How do we take those abandoned drafts, our stuck poems, and re-enter them with fresh verve? Each session we discuss procedures and strategies for revising our poems, do short in-class revision exercises, discuss some published works, before turning to workshop as a group student poems. This class is an invitation to play and radically re-visit poems-in-progress.

Sharon Dolin is the author of five books of poetry, most recently Whirlwind and Burn and Dodge. She teaches at the Unterberg Poetry Center.
