In this generative workshop, each author will see one poem through from start to finish. In lieu of a more traditional workshop format, everyone will share their work at every stage, posing questions whose answers might help them with their individual processes and practices. Together, we will look closely and pragmatically at methods of generation, drafting, organization, design, revision, and editing. Discussion will be geared towards specific and practical elements of putting together a single poem.
