December Writing Workshop with Megan Merchant!

Join us for this month’s free virtual writing workshop with Megan Merchant on Tuesday 12/14 at 8PM Eastern!

Paying Homage to the Wisdom of the Poem: A Revision Strategy for the Lone Writer 

In this generative workshop we will explore a technique for revision that is not just randomly deleting words, chopping lines, or playing with sounds that might work, but one rooted in wisdom—both yours & the poem’s. Please bring any writing materials you are most comfortable using, and a copy of at least one poem you wish to revise. Come prepared to write, revise, and have fun!
