Revising poems involves more than copy-editing. Fixing grammatical mistakes, smoothing out awkward phrasing, adding or subtracting white space: these polishing techniques are fairly easy to make, which is why they seldom leave a big impact on the work. In this six-week course, you will learn and practice radical revision techniques that will transform your writing process—and your poetry. In addition to workshopping existing work, you will produce glittering new poems with the help of generative writing and revision assignments.

Some poets dread revising; by the end of this class, you will see that the process of revision can be the most interesting, engaging, and creative part of writing poetry.
