Schooling the strange

GENRE: Poetry
The Hurst

“No surprise for the writer, no surprise for the reader,” wrote Robert Frost. How do we surprise ourselves in the writing of new poems, let in the super-real as well as honest feeling and thought? Looking at how we can use patterning and form to generate transformative ideas and juxtapositions, we’ll experiment with a variety of techniques to help give shape to the unexpected poem-within-the-poem during both early drafts and editing. We’ll focus on writing poetry as investigation and subversion while also exploring sound and the meaning of poetry.
