WORKSHOP: Intention: Where Does the Poem Want to Go? @ Private Residence
Oct 5 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
WORKSHOP: Intention: Where Does the Poem Want to Go? @ Private Residence

COST: $45 | Please pre-register with Lawrence Feuchtwanger by phone or email |

Muse gone to sleep? Wrestling with an unfinished poem? Wanting to get your creative juices flowing again? Sign up for this small-group poetry workshop with Jami Macarty, an award-winning poet, and editor of on-line poetry journal, The Maynard.

Date: Saturday, Oct. 5, 2:00-4:00 p.m. Cost: $45 Location: 3065 North Rd., Gabriola Contact: Lawrence Feuchtwanger – (250) 325-3065 or lfeuchtwanger@gmail.com

In this workshop we’ll look at a draft of a poem and learn to listen to: where the poem wants to go and how the poem wants to make meaning. We’ll identify the “radiant” areas of the draft and, from there, explore options for revision. Revision is about making choices; we will approach the revision process as if a menu abundant with options, asking: What discoveries, confessions, revelations, etc. does the poem want to convey? What technical or formal support will facilitate the poem’s voyage of discovery? Bring a poem of yours (no longer than one page) that you intuit is “not yet working.” We will interrogate the drafts, experiment with techniques tailored specifically to the concerns/project asserting itself in the drafts, and share (optional) the “results.” At the workshop’s end, you will have at least two fresh takes on your poem. – Jami Macarty
