Memory and anticipation bring texture and richness to the present as our attention moves backward and forward in time. Paying attention to time in our work can add dimension and suggest new structural possibilities. In this generative workshop, we’ll read poems by Dorianne Laux, Gwendolyn Brooks, C. P. Cavafy, Major Jackson, and others, paying attention to moments when the poem frees itself from linear or narrative time. And we’ll write, discuss, and read and write some more.
Prolific poet and prose writer, Mark Doty has been praised by the New York Times for his “dazzling, tactile grasp of the world.” His nine books of poetry include My Alexandria, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award and many other honors.
