Workshop Description: These two days will focus on strategies to push poems further. This means focusing, among other things, on beginnings, endings, tangents that aren’t tangents, expanding and pruning, and formal possibilities including rhythm and sound. We will be revising during the course of the two days and looking at those revisions.
