In this workshop, we will focus on the revision of rough drafts of poems. Topics will include compression, line breaks, titles, word choice and punctuation. Each participant will have the option of bringing one poem-in-progress to the group for discussion and advice on revision. There will be time for Q &A to cover other topics of interest to participants. Participants: Please bring 10 copies of a poem you would like to revise with the input of the instructor and the group (optional), and one copy of a poem that you love written by someone else.
