Reading Deeply/Writing Deeply: Talking Back to the Gods

May 7, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Develop your craft and technique and challenge your usual paradigm, by throwing yourself into deep discussion and deep writing through a close look at three poets (Louise Glück, Lucille Clifton, and Yusef Komunyakaa). These poets talk back to God, sometimes questioning the supreme being’s authority in dirty, sassy tones, and doing it masterfully. Exercise your ability to talk in poems by using a persona, playing with stanza lengths, and implementing unexpected rhythm and beat. Explore a vast sea of poetic realms that will enliven your art.
