The best poems give off a sense of effortlessness, but we know that great poetry takes time and revision. This workshop covers specific strategies for revising at the level of word, line, and whole poem. Work by Ocean Vuong, Anne Sexton, and others will illustrate enjambment, concrete images, and other elements that make poetry sing. Participants will generate new work but should bring drafts of three different poems to practice some of these strategies.

Out of concern for the current Covid-19 situation and respect for the health of all our students, teachers and staff, the Encouraging Effects of Revision workshop will be online via Wetink.

Registered students will be emailed class login information before the class.

Aaron Deutsch received his MFA from Texas State University. His work appears in Willows Wept Review, the anthology Thirty Poems for the Tricentennial: A Poetic Legacy, and Scalawag Magazine (online). Aaron splits his time managing a team of teachers at the Defense Language Institute-English Language Center and teaching poetry workshops in San Antonio.
