Poetry Writing Master Class with Tom Centolella
"Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful." - Rita Dove
Poets attempt to say the unsayable—an ambition that should never be "all work, no play." In this lively workshop, a master poet will play Virgil to your Dante, guiding the way to your unique vision and voice. Bring your works-in-progress, or the optional weekly assignment, for encouraging, in-depth feedback. To jumpstart inspiration, each meeting will begin with the discussion of a notable poem, occasionally followed by a fun in-class exercise—all supplemented by examinations into poetic forms (ancient to contemporary), the art of revision, and creative tactics for extracting the hidden gold of your imagination. For all poets, wherever you are on the journey.
