Rewriting With Abandon: The Art of Revision with Sharon Dolin

Oct 30, 2014 | 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm | Recurring Event: An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on [day], happening 6 times

Sharon Dolin

“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.
