In-Person Poetry Workshop featuring David Sanders

April 8, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

In this in-person workshop poets will look at each other’s works-in-progress and the work of established poets, with an emphasis on the role that syntactical patterns play in determining the emotional effect of the poem as well as looking at its practical use as a rhetorical engine in the development of the poem itself.
