In this advanced poetry workshop, we’ll work on further developing our voices as poets through discussions, workshops, and close readings of poems. Students will walk away from the class with a clearer sense of their individual practices as poets. By Wednesday, May 26, students registered for the workshop will be required to submit a short packet of poems (3-5 pages) and read a short packet of materials provided by the instructor. Students are required to have taken at least two poetry classes.

Chet’la Sebree is the author of Field Study, winner of the 2020 James Laughlin Prize, and Mistress, which was nominated for an NAACP Image Award. She is the director of the Stadler Center for Poetry & Literary Arts and an assistant professor at Bucknell University. For her work, she has received fellowships and awards from the Academy of American Poets, Hedgebrook, MacDowell, and Yaddo. Her work has most recently appeared in Dr. Ibram X. Kendi & Dr. Keisha N. Blain’s Four Hundred Souls: A Community of African America, 1619-2019.
