Writer's Workshop with Sebastián Hasani Páramo
Sebastián Hasani Páramo will present an online writing workshop entitled "A Way of Writing: Revising Your Work With New Eyes" In this workshop, Páramo will discuss ways of writing poetry, specifically how one approaches revision. Revision doesn't mean that your poems are bad. In this short class, we'll discuss how to push for more when writing poems.
In writing, the inclination is to rely on familiar and easy writing. With this in mind, our goal will be to set the bar higher for ourselves and find a practice that is satisfying and challenges the comfort zone of the writer. Discussions will center on contemporary poetry and examine specific poems and essays that ask us to dig deeper into what we are saying.
