Radical Revision: A Poetry Workshop

with Martha Rhodes

Apr 20, 2013 | 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

poet Martha Rhodes, Poetry NYC, Poetry Workshops

This workshop will focus on revision and how we can continue to push the poem along the path we want to explore by investigating diction, structure and other craft elements, while driving poems into uncharted terrain by investigating alternate and unexpected routes. So, we’ll look at strategies for revision, both “conventional” and radical. A willingness to move around in your poems and to be open to surprising suggestions is the main criterion for joining this workshop.

Martha Rhodes is the author of four poetry collections: At the Gate, Perfect Disappearance, Mother Quiet, and most recently, The Beds. She is on the faculties of Sarah Lawrence College and the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College, the director of The Frost Place Conference on Poetry, and founding editor and director of Four Way Books.
