3rd Eye Revision

A six-week online workshop with Brigid Yuknavitch

Re-vision or re-seeing your own poem takes deftness and courage. We so emerge, belong in, and suffer our poems that we almost can’t read them. So in this set of experiments, just as you stand before the poem with choices, you will stand after the poem with choices. Just as you keep an eye on form to write the poem, you will keep an eye on form to re-see, re-hear, and re-member the poem. You will experiment with what you have made to see what the poem still points toward: its voice, its other side of the moon, its underbelly, its space on the page, its place among poems, and your act of making the poem.

Week 1: Line

Week 2: Voice 

Week 3: Polarities

Week 4: Between the lines

Week 5: The poems before and after 

Week 6: What the poem says; what you say by writing the poem
