Major Jackson: Doorways-A Poetry Workshop
July 4-July 9, 2010
To write poetry is to engage in a life-long journey of honing one's skills in attuning life to the basic workings of language. It is a kind of spiritual practice that requires a wild discipline. The task is to uncover the joys of making. In this poetry workshop, we will tap into what we collectively know about how poems function and offer feedback on how to enrich a poem's ability to say what has not been said before.
