Sense, Vision, Insight, Form: Poetry Workshop with Andrew Singer
Over 5 consecutive Sundays, we will explore a unique and elegant set of tools and techniques for quickly deepening in poetic understanding and facility. Group and individual writing exercises are supplemented with a poetry reading syllabus and discussion. To write poetry well, you've got to read poetry well. Poems for reading and discussion are selected from among the poets Emily Brontë, Robert Browning, Thomas Hardy, Ezra Pound, H.D., Hart Crane, W. H. Auden and Derek Walcott. A complete syllabus will be provided to enrolled students before start of the course. No prior experience is needed to participate. These workshop sessions present a sequence of group exercises designed to help poets of all types, styles and experience discover and explore a new way of approaching poetry.
Venue: Bowery Poetry Club
