The POEM as Kaleidoscope –  An individual’s poem contains not only a map of undivided consciousness, but also the potential for generating work in other genres:  creative nonfiction; memoir, short fiction; experimental writing.  Bring 3 pages of your typed poetry for discussion and critique.  Will include dynamic exercises and ideas to stimulate new writing.
