This workshop is for poets who already have a body of work (however large or small) and who are currently working on a project or collection. It presupposes two things: that poetry as a project is as rigorous an undertaking as more typically scholarly undertakings; and that participants have an interest in theoretical concerns and see certain philosophical and/or social issues as relevant to poetry and to the particular technical problems (praxis or craft) that poetry entails. Participants will be expected to engage with poetics as well as poetry.
