This is an introductory creative writing workshop in which participants write, revise, and discuss their original works of poetry in a collaborative group setting. We'll rely on a series of writing prompts, technical exercises, and a wide-ranging survey of poetry from this and past centuries. Our aim is to learn something about how to think about the practice and art of writing verse, how to begin poems, how to develop them, how to end them, how to revise, how to think about representation and responsibility, and generally how to find one's way to the words.
