Line, Voice, Story: Let the Poetry of Larry Levis Be Our Guide
Take a deep dive into the poetry of Larry Levis, reading in community and writing in response together. In this weekly workshop, we read aloud together for the first hour and in the second hour, we write independently. You will receive supplemental materials weekly, including a mix of writing prompts, essays, interviews, and links for further reading. In our final meeting, we will celebrate and share all of our newly generated work.
The workshop is designed for us to become intimately familiar with the poetry of Larry Levis, and to see how his work changed throughout his life. By reading aloud, we open both eye and ear to appreciate the poem’s craft. Writing in community honors the creative process as we generate drafts of original work inspired by Levis’s rich and approachable poems.
