Poetry Workshop: MFA-Style Discussion/Feedback Group

Though a poem might appear to have been poured in a single gentle stream from poet’s mind onto page, the process of creating it might be better compared to working the Sunday crossword or catching a sparrow by the tail. Good poems usually require multiple revisions, and good poets appreciate the quality feedback they receive from dedicated workshop members who can point out what works inside a given poem—and what doesn’t. If you enjoy giving and receiving helpful critique and have poems that you’d like help with to revise and polish, please join us for one (or both!) of these workshop opportunities. For: Poets of all levels, published or emerging, with at least a handful of finished poems. (Each participant will share at least one completed poem each week.) This class meets on six Thursdays, February 24, March 3, 10, 24, 31 and April 7, 10am-12pm. NOTE: There is no session on March 17.
