Seeing is Believing: Drafting the Lasting Image with Nicole Sealey

Saturday, March 11, 2023 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

Saturday, March 11, 11:00AM - 1:00PM

Meeting will take place in the Poetry Center's Alumni Room, Room 205; limit 12 students. Registration now open.  Register here. 

In The Poet’s Companion, Kim Addonizio and Dorianne Laux note that images should “produce a bit of magic, a reality so real it is ‘like being alive twice.’” As poets, after mining our respective memories, how do we deepen a reader’s experience with the poem via the image? How does one draft a lasting image? This workshop will explore the image, its implications, as more than mere scenery. To do this, participants will review poems with images that reverberate and re-imagine their own poems with images that idle.
