WORKSHOP WITH DAVID GROFF

Writing the “After” Poem: Taking Inspiration from Your Poet-Forerunners


Our poems exist in the context of poems already written. In this workshop, we’ll join the tradition of poets responding to the work of poets who came before us. We’ll write and discuss our own “after” poems—poems that recast, revise, renew, reimagine, and maybe even reject modern and contemporary works that are part of our personal canon. Our result will be poems that transcend imitation, homage, and critique to become truly original, truly our own.
