Though a poem might appear to have been poured in a single gentle stream from poet’s mind onto page, the process of creating it might be better compared to working the Sunday crossword or catching a sparrow by the tail. Good poems usually require multiple revisions, and good poets appreciate the quality feedback they receive from dedicated workshop members who can point out what works inside a given poem—and what doesn’t. If you enjoy giving and receiving helpful critique and have poems that you’d like help with to revise and polish, please join us! Note: This workshop meets 5 Tuesdays: October 1, 8, 15, 22, & 29. Poetry Workshop is offered again in the spring, five sessions beginning February 4. You are welcome to take both!
