I’m on faculty at 24PearlStreet, the online writing program for the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown!

I’m teaching “Radical Revision: Preparing Poems for Publication” this winter, and if you or someone you know are interested, I’d love to work with you! More info below! The class runs Jan. 13-Feb. 7, 2020. The New Year is the perfect time to dig into some drafts and get them ready for the world. 💫

Registration deal: 15% off tuition with the code EARLYWINTER20 before Jan. 2, 2020. Class caps at 15 students.

Course description:

So you have a draft. What now? This class is geared to helping you rip open the seams of your poems and re-enter them with fresh eyes so that you can prepare them for publication this year. We will look at the revision process of poets like Allen Ginsberg, Elizabeth Bishop, Carl Phillips, Gary Soto, and Sylvia Plath as you turn to your own work and re-enter its rooms. The goal is for your reader to—as Emily Dickinson says about poems—“feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off.” You should be prepared to bring 5-8 drafts to this course. If you don’t have drafts to bring, you will receive writing prompts based on specific themes to help you generate new work to revise. Let’s be radicals together and send our poems out into the world to do their work this year!
