This generative writing workshop explores the secret inner workings of poetry and the poetic psyche through the power of voice and power of place. We will engage in close readings of contemporary poets and talk about strategies employed. Workshop participants will write poems based on prompts and particular strategies discussed. Poems will be shared and discussed.
