Limited Capacity seats available

This master class is a $50 ticketed session that is not included in festival button prices. Please secure your spot by registering at www.masspoetry.org/masterclass/#schwartz.

This workshop will focus on form. Please bring a poem of yours either in a traditional form or in a new and experimental version of a traditional form. Also bring along a poem by another poet in that form. You might enjoy looking at Elizabeth Bishop’s “Sonnet” (the one beginning “Caught, the bubble”) or her villanelle “One Art” to see how a great poet responds to and changes a familiar form. If there’s time, we might try writing a poem in a different form from the one you first brought.
