The focus of this workshop is the revision and re-visioning of existing poems. We will discuss how to increase the intensity of your language and images by poetic craft elements. We will also allow the poem to journey into uncharted terrain via surprising, and radical, revision suggestions. A willingness to revision and re-vision your poem and an openness to suggestions are the criteria for this workshop. There will also be in-class revision exercises. Bring a poem (no more than one page), pen/paper, and an open mind to the first class.
