Most of us have poems that aren't quite "there" yet. Odds are, you're saving them for an opportunity to spruce up when you have time. These two interactive poetry revision workshops are the perfect opportunity to turn your beloved outcasts into excellent poems.

We'll open up our Word docs of discarded drafts to re-enter the mindsets, moods, and melodies that created them.

Learn revision exercises that teach you how to find the heart of your poems or refashion them into new shapes.
Workshop poem drafts, get feedback from other poets about what works, and guidance on your revision journey.

Participants should bring one poem 1-2 pages in length, in a format that's easy to revise during class sessions. All poets are welcome.
