Deepening the Poem

with Mark Doty and Jeremy Levie
July 22-27


Opening the poem to possibilities, meanings and contradictions.

Most of us start out writing at a surface level and find that, as we continue to work with a poem, we reach into deeper layers of meaning, finding possibilities we couldn't have seen at the beginning. This workshop is designed to help participants open and complicate their poems. Reaching further through writing exercises and meditation, we'll allow our poems-in-progress to become more wholly themselves.
