Class Duration: 8 Week, Loft Membership Price: $252
This class focuses on the composition process: on the initial disturbance and possession, the imperative of a poem's origins, and on how we learn to pay attention to the poem as it comes into being. How do you actually discover the poem's true subject? When you are aware of the poem's true trajectory, how do you begin making more conscious technical/craft choices and honouring the 'voice' that decides the 'rightness of your designs?' We will explore /discuss the origins of poems in general and of your own poems in particular, becoming more conscious of their genesis and of the craft choices you make (and why you make them).
