All you have to do is to read the early drafts of a well-known poet’s work to realize how crucial revision is. And yet most poets resist doing the hard work involved in turning a rough draft into a finished poem. This workshop will focus on how to distance yourself from your poem so that you can identify its weaknesses. We will examine the strategies other poets have used to get “unstuck” and take a look at various ways to approach the revision process. Then we will look at the “before” and “after” versions of a successful poem to see what the poet changed and why.
