This is an in-person workshop that takes place at Inprint House.
“Form is never more than an extension of content,” Robert Creeley famously quipped. In this workshop we will spend the first half of our class time studying various poets, craft elements, and poetic forms to understand how best to extend the content of your own imagination. The second half of our class will be devoted to workshopping poems, engaging in writing exercises and prompts, and providing time to free write and/or revise your work in a collaborative and supportive setting.
