A masterclass with Erin Mouré

About this Event

Do the words of poems create meaning, or simply convey already existing meanings? In a world infinitely more complex and mysterious than we can express, how does a poem “mean”? How does a poem come to resonate with us? And why do some fall flat. Join Erín Moure, author of 17 books of poetry and translator of 20 more, to work on these questions and learn a revision technique called “working from strengths.” Bring a poem (or two) you are not yet satisfied with, that you that you know has potential but can’t seem to get it to work, and some clean sheets of paper and a pen/pencil. Via a set of guided exercises, and sharing of results, participants will learn revision practices that will help power up their poems.

Sunday, October 6, 1:30-3:30 pm
