This workshop is designed for advanced students of poetry. Members will write and design a chapbook of 20-30 pages; at least 15 pages of this work will be 'new writing' completed in the course of the semester. The collection/chapbook produced can reflect mixed mediums, collaboration, and hybrid forms. Workshop members are expected to submit work for peer feedback and to respond to peer work in the course of the semester. Each workshop member will also study and respond to collections of published poems, with an emphasis on 'first book' and small press publications. Limited to 16 students, this workshop is designed for those who have had at least one 200-level workshop in poetry. Instructor permission is required. Email hmIA@hampshire.edu for more information.
