In this approach to full-draft revision, we work on re-seeing the whole poem, shifting the poem’s focus, discovering a new set of images and associations, or retelling the poem’s central story. In this workshop, we will dig into drafts to discover other layers and facets of the poem’s subject and imagery. In a series of three to five exercises, we’ll explore, expand, and excavate a draft to discover its branches, ghosts, and doppelgangers. Bring one poem draft you are ready to explore and significantly rewrite. Taught by Rebecca Aronson, English faculty at CNM. Aronson's poetry compilation, Ghost Child of the Atalanta Bloom, will be available for purchase for $12, cash, check, or app. Registration required.

Rebecca Aronson is the author of Anchor, forthcoming from Orison Books in 2022; Ghost Child of the Atalanta Bloom, winner of the 2016 Orison Books poetry prize and winner of the 2019 Margaret Randall Book Award from the Albuquerque Museum Foundation; and Creature, Creature, winner of the Main-Traveled Roads Poetry Prize (2007). She has been a recipient of a Prairie Schooner Strousse Award, the Loft’s Speakeasy Poetry Prize, and a Tennessee Williams Scholarship to Sewanee.  She is co-founder and host of Bad Mouth, a series of words and music. She teaches writing at CNM.
