Poetry Master Class with Chard deNiord

  • Burlington Writers Workshop 110 Main Street, Studio 3C Burlington, VT United States (map)

Join Vermont poet laureate Chard deNiord for a Poetry Master Class. This workshop will focus on reading and writing poems whose speakers place another before them, and then make charged figurative connections to what Walt Whitman called “the other I am.” We will read each other’s poems line by line, examining line breaks, poetic strategy, form, intention, imagery, tropes, verbal music, and what John Keats described in his definition of “negative capability” as the ability to “exist in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason.” In addition to writing poems with transpersonal speakers, we will also write a few persona poems as class exercises.
