Do you have an idea for a poetic sequence of any length, perhaps on a specific subject or theme? Do you wonder how to take an individual poem or idea and turn it into a series—even a book-length project? Working in this mode offers an alternative to the single monolithic poem that never quite tells the whole story you want to tell, and offers a pathway to the kinds of surprises and breakthroughs that we seek in poems, whether as readers or writers. It this two day, generative workshop we’ll study examples of multi-part poems that employ interesting writing strategies and then we’ll take what we learn and begin writing a series of our own. Readings include selections from by Lorine Niedecker, Jim Moore, Louise Glück, Harryette Mullen, and others. This workshop is ideal for poets who’ve been reading and writing poetry for a while and want to push themselves into more ambitious territory.
