On Teaching

Modern and contemporary American poetry, international poetry, practical criticism, and literary history

My workshops place equal emphasis on matters of process and matters of craft, and are meant to offer students the practical exercises and theoretical knowledge that will allow them to pursue individual vision while staying in touch with the collective tradition.
