Here's more about the workshop topic:
Demystifying the Revision Process
Writing poems is the fun part, right? Revision, well that can be another story altogether. In this workshop, we will discuss strategies to take the mystery out of the revision process, and discuss ways to “re-enter” stalled poems.
We will then apply these techniques as we close-read and critique poems by our workshop participants.
