Feeling like a one-trick pony in your poems? Looking to get out of your comfort zone to try something new?
In the first installment of this lunchtime seminar series—that uses Dean Young’s The Art of Recklessness: Poetry as Assertive Force and Contradiction as a guiding principle—we will discuss ways to surprise yourself in your writing practice using generative strategies that can act as a springboard for new poems.
