Poetry Workshop Offered this Fall

New York State Writers Institute Writing Fellow Rebecca Wolff, editor of FENCE magazine, will conduct an intermediate to advanced poetry workshop during the Fall 2010 semester. The workshop will give students opportunities to develop and revise poems; emphasis will be on taking each poem on its own terms, and some work will be done to determine those terms. This work will include presentation to and discussion with the group of influences and interests vis à vis poetic lineage.

The workshop is scheduled for eight Monday nights (September 20, 27, October 4, 11, 18, November 1, 8, 15) from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The class will take place on the University at Albany’s uptown campus. The workshop is limited to ten writers and is open to UAlbany English graduate students as well as members of the general community.

Admission is based on the submission of writing samples. To be considered, submit manuscripts to the Writers Institute according to the guidelines listed on our website. The application deadline is Wednesday, August 25, 2010.
