The Making of a Memorable Poem with Richard Blanco
We’ve all probably written a number of poems that we consider fairly accomplished or good poems. But what is the difference between a good poem and a truly memorable one? We will investigate that question through close readings of exemplary poems, discovering those qualities and elements that make poetry truly memorable. In that light, we will then workshop our poems, zeroing-in on transforming a merely good poem into a great, memorable one.
In order to receive feedback on your work in class, students must submit 1-2 poems (no more than 4 pages) no later than October 11, 2019 to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "work submission for Richard Blanco workshop."
