Marshall | Exploring the Underbelly

Maya Marshall
In this revision workshop, participants will discuss the specifics of the nebulous and idiosyncratic practice of revision. Together, we will examine a published poem in its nascent and then its mature state and discuss the types of changes authors make. Afterward, participants will be led through a revision exercise that invites them to read and re-see syntax, line, diction, sonic texture, redundancy, and content. Participants will need to arrive with some works in progress.
