Poetry Intensive: Poetic Sequence
with Elizabeth Robinson
This workshop will help poets stretch their poems from page to page, looking at the ways a sequence of poems can build an idea while also shifting in tone and focus from page to page. Students are invited to come to class with a one page poem, and we will experiment and play from there. We will consider examples from a number of contemporary poets.
All levels welcome.
