With Leatha Kendrick.

What makes a poem matter? How can we reach past what we think we are able to say? Through a focused exploration of craft and through generating new work together, we will attempt the poems we are not able to write. Reading poetry–the great and the new–we will expand our sense of what is possible. Limit: 10 participants [ALL LEVELS]
