Poetry Writing Workshop: Leaping Imagination 2251

"Unless poets are stumped by their art, unless they are forced to look behond the obvious associations, they'll never invent an original line." (Johan Lehrer, Wired magazine) In this workshop, we will experiment with constraints and puzzles to create poetry that leaps off the page with passion and fresh imagery. We will read and explore diverse poems and creative constraints. Using these models or poetry writing exercises, we will write at least one draft poem per session (9-10 poems in total), share and discuss our work with each other in order to revise your poems. All levels are welcome.
