This is a writing- and workshop-focused eight-week intensive course for writers who are seeking to push their creative boundaries, develop new work, share and receive feedback, and deepen their poetry practice.

This is appropriate as a follow-on course for those who previously took Poetry in Practice or those who have previous experience writing and workshopping poetry. After the first class, each student will be expected to bring one new, original poem each week to share.
