With Thomas McCarthy
SIX GOLDEN LYRICS. This is the year to write and perfect a small group of personal lyrics, poems with structure, force, personality and high voltage. In our workshops we'll concentrate on those six lyrics that might be brought to perfection, to that point where they could be published anywhere in the English-speaking world.
I would like each workshop participant to imagine and re-imagine a quiver-full of six poems that they want to push to sharpness and perfection. This year's workshop is all about that effort of perfection, of working at each poem until it becomes a golden object. We may begin with three poems by each participant, but six is our objective by the time September arrives. Sharpen your pencils, we're deep-diving into each poem.
