Description:  Join me, Sawnie Morris, in an exuberant exploration of poetic forms. We’ll read classic poems written in traditional forms, study our craft (including the historical origins of each form), and we’ll learn from poems by contemporary poets who are diversifying on the old and creating new and exciting hybrid forms. Each week we’ll meet together as a group –  poets from across the country –  to discuss the poems and prose-about-poems we’ve been reading, perhaps try our hand at a few in-class writing experiments, and share our own poems with one another in a generous, respectful, and informed workshop format. You’ll receive written comments on your poems from Sawnie, with the opportunity for a private, weekly, one-on-one session with her during “office hours.”
