Forthcoming Readings and Events

Teaching at the West Chester University Poetry Conference, April 2-4, 2020:


In this craft workshop, we will pick up our pens and write, exploring a range of poetic forms from formal to free. We will look at form and content, and how their interplay creates expression in a wide variety of poems. The class will revive your acquaintance with a number of poetic forms, and also introduce untapped possibilities for variation through a series of novel and stimulating exercises. We will spend part of our time on revision techniques. We will jump-start our own writing and refresh our approach to revision, and have fun along the way.
