Embracing Rewriting Alongside Revision: A Virtual Poetry Workshop

In Matt Bell’s book Refuse to Be Done: How to Write and Rewrite a Novel in Three Drafts, Bell encourages rewriting instead of revision. The latter aligns itself more with copying and pasting, the former with new efforts, words, strategies, and imaginations. In this four-week poetry workshop, we will generate new work and embrace radical rewriting, exploring every angle, voice, and format of a poem’s potential. The class structure will focus primarily on strategies for generating new work, revision suggestions, and rewriting exercises. The last two classes will be solely devoted to workshopping one another’s work.
