How do we move from writing good poems toward assembling a whole book? In two 4-hour sessions, we’ll engage with our poems and find strategies for arranging a manuscript. We'll look at some published books to see the logic of how their poems are aligned. We’ll listen for the ways our own poems speak to one another and create a shape for our collection. We’ll discuss ways to edit what we have and generate new materials toward a complete volume.
