Poetry Workshop with Barry Schwabsky

Event Type: Poetry Workshop
Event Date and Time:
1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Description: July 7-11 | 1pm - 4pm | Class fee: $395 (advanced registration required) | This class will examine states of poetry that resist closure. Is there a value to the inchoate? How does the useless become useful, failure become a constructive force? Each participant is asked to bring to the first class at least one example of an unfinished, fragmented, failed, or abandoned poem of his or her own, and also one found from the existing literature of the past or present that seems worth discussing. From there, we'll go on producing even more and better unfinishedness, fragmentation, failure, and abandonment. As with all poetical tasks, this will require ruthlessness and empathy in equal measure.
