Deep Sonnets: Chaos in Fourteen Lines with Annie Finch

August 29 – September 1, 2014

This workshop will provide a safe and vibrant space to discover your own personal poetic relationship with the chaos in 14 lines. How can the sonnet inspire us as contemporary poets, and what, if anything, can we give the sonnet? Through journaling, composing, diagramming, performance, and discussion of sonnets, and above all through writing and sharing our own, each of us will find a new energetic connection with the powerful form on which Edna built her voice.
