+Live Workshop of Your Poetry

Led by Justin Balog, Assistant Editor at Michigan Quarterly Review. You can read Issue 3 of MQR Mixtape, guest edited by Justin.

What is the role of science in poetry? These days it seems scientific inspiration abounds for writing material. But how do we best make use of science in poetics especially when writing about the pandemic?

In this workshop, you'll bring one poem to have cold workshopped by the group. This three-hour workshop is perfect for poets who have been writing about the pandemic and/or found their material altered during the various stages of lockdown and social isolation.

During the workshop we'll look at several published poems in an attempt to establish a better understanding of our own “pandemic” writing. The rest of the workshop will be devoted to focusing on your writing and peer feedback/critique. 

NOTE: After you register for the workshop, you'll be prompted via email to send a poem to the instructor, Justin Balog, who will read it ahead of the workshop. Come prepared for an interactive class where we'll discuss your work and the work of your peers.
