About the event
Description: This workshop will dive into the complexities of writing about writing through ars poetica: poetry written about the art of poetry. Starting with a quick refresher of the genre, we will move on to exciting contemporary poets who bring ars poetica into the 21st century, such as Danez Smith, Aerik Francis, and Oliver Baez Bendorf. Though this workshop is grounded in poetics, writers of all genres can take away insights on the value of writing about writing! Will you write an ars poetica or an anti poetica?
