The Short Long Poem

Saturday, February 1 - 1:00 PM


Long poems marvel us with their expansiveness, but many short poems seem to have this quality as well. Their brevity belies their extraordinary breadth and scope. In this seminar, we’ll explore how to harness the expansiveness of long poetry for our more concise work. We’ll consider four poems—one each by Brigit Pegeen Kelly, Louise Glück, Srikanth Reddy, and Robin Coste Lewis—as examples and guides, and apply the ideas we generate to our work through in-class prompts. Students can bring a short draft or poem to be revisited, or can start from scratch.
