All are welcome to participate - please be sure to RSVP here on Meetup.com. If you are able to, please print, read, and make comments in advance on the three poems to be workshopped. If you are unable to print them in advance, extra copies will be available at the workshop.
Those reading materials can be found here - look for files that include the date of this workshop:
1. Three poems (by three participant poets) will be workshopped by the group.
2. We'll take a look at alternative uses of punctuation in poetry, examining a range of poets who have used creative license with punctuation, and discuss what techniques are and aren't successful for us individually as readers and writers. The take-home challenge will be to write a poem employing punctuation in a way that is new to your practice.
3. If anyone did the take-home challenge from the last workshop, we'll briefly share those.
Reading materials can be found here (http://burlingtonwritersworkshop.com/files/).
