Revision Strategies for Poets: Looking at Mode in Poems

November 10 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

$100

Identifying mode in poems is a valuable diagnostic and revision method. In this brief lecture followed by a workshop, we’ll define the four modes—lyric, narrative, argument, description—and read examples of each. Then we’ll turn to participants’ poems, first identifying the dominant mode and then asking whether the poem would be better served by a different one. Through this workshop, you can refresh your perspective on the revision process. Please bring copies of two poems that you’re unhappy with, but note that we might not have time for both.
