The goal of this class is to help students use a full range of techniques in order to access greater emotional freedom and depth in their work. Emphasis is placed on creating and sustaining an effective artistic distance. The techniques used to create this distance are further explored in The Writers Studio Craft Class, in which the readings that form the basis of the workshop are discussed in greater depth. Students at this level often work on publishable poems.
Open only by permission of the teacher to students who have completed Level II or who have poetry publications, an MFA, or four post-graduate writing courses.
