What does it mean to have a “Poetry Practice”? This workshop will explore the many ways we might integrate a regular and committed poetry practice into our (too often too busy!) daily



During our day together, we will explore (and attempt) a range of generative methods you can adapt to your writing practice. We will practice these methods in class while also reading and discussing a range of exemplary poems that model these techniques.


Designed for all writers interested in beginning, developing, or reinvigorating a poetry practice, the goal is for you to leave the workshop with a plan for deepening your own practice and a refreshed toolbox of creative exercises.
