Seminar Title: Writing the Body, the Body Writing: Poetic Voice & Uncertainty

During this workshop we will examine the power of voice when crafting vulnerable poems. We will begin by turn to poets who have done this and analyze methods for deploying voice.  Then, we will move into our own writing and ask: who/what is the poetic voice in our writing? How do your experiences shape your poetic voice?
