Pom Poms for Poems!!
Pom Poms for Poems!!

I once read an essay for one of my poetry courses that a poet wrote about advising his students' poetry. The gist of the essay was that, consciously or not, he was going to encourage his students to write more like him. There was no way around it.

I see the dilemma, but I disagree. In this workshop we're going to look at why you like your work, why you don't, and how your poem can best be served. The idea is that your poem lives a separate life-separate from critique, separate from you, even. As a group, we'll look at what we think the poem is trying to say, and whether its
voice is being given the opportunity to be heard, or whether it's being muffled, drowned out, watered down, etc. Everyone will take part actively in this process.

We'll have themes, topics, and assignments, but these are to help, not to hinder; feel free to bring in whatever work you'd like, one poem per week, with enough copies for everyone in the group. Anyone who writes or wants to write poetry is welcome! The space will be one
where women encourage women to let go, be honest, tell lies, paint words, makes messes, dance language, fuck it all up, be relentless. We are poetry cheerleaders! Go Poems Go!
