Playing with Focal Length Revision Workshop

Saturday, Nov. 13, 10:30 AM
According to dancer and choreographer Twyla Tharp, “All of us find comfort in seeing the world either from a great distance, at arm’s length, or in close-up.” Though Tharp claims that “we don’t generally waver” from our preferred viewpoints, breaking out of our comfort zones can be a powerful tool for re-seeing our work.

In this revision workshop, we’ll read and discuss poems that use close, middle, and distant perspectives, then practice rewriting our own poems with different focal lengths. Bring one or two of your own poems that you’d like to approach with fresh eyes. For all levels. Register.
