How to Ask Questions in Poems

To ask a question in a poem, one invites the reader into a deeper conversation, to be a part of the life inside (and outside) the poem. But oftentimes, the questions we ask can throw a reader out of the moment we are building. In this seminar, we will not only work to ask questions in our poems but ask questions about our poems so that we can find out how to best sharpen our queries. Open to writers both beginning and advanced, the pursuit of a good question should not be overlooked. Poems from poets such as Ocean Vuong and Richard Siken will help set the foundation on how strong questions can evoke even stronger responses.

Please note: This class is an online class. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
