BEYOND THE LYRIC I: USING RESEARCH IN POETRY
Saturday, October 26th at 2:00PM-3:15PM
Admission: $10.00
Limited to 12

In this workshop, we'll look at some poems that move beyond personal experience and into material that involves historical, social, nature-related and/or other research, without sacrificing personal involvement and feeling. We'll discuss some strategies for transforming documentary material into poetry, and I'll invite you to answer some questions that might give you starting points for writing these kinds of poems yourself.

Martha Collins' tenth book of poetry, Because What Else Could I Do, is being published this fall in the Pitt Poetry Series. Her previous volumes include Admit One: An American Scrapbook, White Papers, and the book-length poem Blue Front, as well as the paired volumes Night Unto Night and Day Unto Day. Collins founded the Creative Writing Program at U.Mass.-Boston and taught at Oberlin College. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
