This means that something is happening in a lyric poem between a You and an I\, the speaker and their audience\, the lover and the beloved\, the poet and the reader. These are shifting positions: a reader may occupy the position of the beloved You\, and thus become the addressee of the poem\, or the reader may identify with the I of the poem and become the addressor. There is a generosity and a special kind of intimacy to this exchange. We will consider how treating the lyric not only as a literary product but a relational process changes the ways in which we read and write poems. We will read and discuss poets including Claudia Rankine\, Louise Glück\, Terrance Hayes and others; generate new work and workshop our poems. Participants will be invited to read their poems to the class. This workshop is open to writers of all levels. \n URL: LOCATION:Inprint CATEGORIES:Inprint Intensive Workshops,Writers Workshops ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
