Poet Martha Collins will host a workshop for the Fine Arts Work Center's Social Justice Week titled "Beyong the Lyrical 'I': Using Documentary Resarch in Poems Exploring Political & Social Issues." LEARN MORE
In this workshop, Collins will focus on moving beyond personal experience and into material that involves historical, socio-political, or other research, without sacrificing personal involvement and feeling. All classes will include discussion of published poems and suggestions about how to move beyond the lyrical "I." But the primary focus will be on your own work, either new poems or poems (or sections of poems) on which you're already working.
