This is a workshop for poets who are looking to enrich and enliven their writing practice, creating new and expansive possibilities for the poem. We will explore diverse strategies, including collage, word games, ekphrastic experiments, and systematized destruction of the expected. The class is process-oriented and aims at enlarging poetic vocabularies and notions of form. We will read some writings by established poets in addition to discussing our own works-in-progress in a supportive atmosphere.
