What do Elizabeth Bishop, Charles Wright, and Lynda Hull have in common?

The alley stretches farThey’re all part of the class I’m teaching on Saturday: The Long Way Home: Writing Long Poems.

(Maybe I need a picture of a moose.)

Or I could ask, “How do you write that 10-page poem to submit to The Seattle Review?” Currently, that’s their minimum.

And yes, I’ve been posting about this class all over the place, but I thought I’d make one last pitch.

(Maybe I need a baseball photo.)

We’ll look at examples from Bishop, Wright, Hull, Nicole Cooley, Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge, and more.

And we’ll write–a lot!

If you’ve wanted to explore that sweet spot between compression and drawing an idea out, come join us.

In the meantime, I’ll be seeing my daughter off to Thailand. Yikes!
