Shouldn’t writing be fun? If you want to write poems that are risky, playful, or just plain alive, this workshop is for you. While reading model poems, exploring craft techniques, and identifying your own poetic concerns, you will receive practical and enjoyable tips for invigorating your poems, present and future.
