Getting the Poetry Engine Started: Writing & Revising Poetry with H.E. Fisher (via Zoom)

This 4-week, 2-hour workshop is designed for those who would like to kickstart or refine their poetry writing practice. In this class, we will look at poems from established writers such as Michael Longley, Nicole Sealey, Marie Howe, and Ilya Kaminsky, as a means to discuss craft: line, imagery, language, and the consideration of form (both traditional and non-). Participants will be asked to bring in one poem per week to workshop. A list of resources of further readings, prompts, and tips for submitting poems for publication will be also provided. All levels welcome.

NB: This class will be taught on Zoom, 4 Thursdays, 10:30AM-12:30PM ET, July 6-July 27, and will be capped at 10 students.
