Poems emerge out of a layered relationship to the world around us and what we carry within. The poems we most cherish possess and refract the richness of complex existence and help us see what lies beyond with luminous clarity. This workshop will guide participants through several processes of writing poems that build structurally from the known to the unknown using improvisatory acts of imagination, imagery, forms, and language.

Major Jackson is the author of five books of poetry, including The Absurd Man, released this year, and Leaving Saturn, which won the Cave Canem Poetry Prize for a first book of poems.
