How far do you stretch yourself as a poet? John McCullough’s workshop will encourage you to engage in thematic and formal departures, asking participants to begin poems from a range of surprising angles. We’ll discuss areas like reading and writing outside your comfort zone, experimenting with lines and stanzas, and radical editing.
