Past events: 

August 19-25, 2023:  Workshop co-run with Michael Waters for the Chautauqua Institution.  

"The Merge"
This workshop will focus on how sound and structure in a poem can convey meaning, and how the line may function as both individual and integral unit. Each class will begin with a discussion of a single, brief poem by a major poet that demonstrates the merging of lineation and sound work toward making the poem cohesive and memorable. Then we will consider this aspect of craft (among others) in your own poems. Anticipate a fast-moving and lively workshop!
