    This advanced poetry workshop is for experienced poets who want to deepen their engagement with their writing and learn fresh ways to approach, refine, and revise new work. With craft in mind, we will look at the shapes your individual poems make on the page and how they relate to subject matter, how the best poems find their structures, and explore what constitutes the best “containers” for your ideas.  Part tutorial, each student will have the opportunity to discuss their own projects in conference. At the end of five weeks, you will have five new ways to look at your poems.
