    Reading Deeply/Writing Deeply: Talking Back to the Gods Writing Workshop

    Develop your craft and technique and challenge your usual paradigm, by throwing yourself into deep discussion and deep writing through a close look at three poets (Louise Glück, Lucille Clifton, and Yusef Komunyakaa). These poets talk back to God, sometimes questioning the supreme being’s authority in dirty, sassy tones, and doing it masterfully. Exercise your ability to talk in poems by using a persona, playing with stanza lengths, and implementing unexpected rhythm and beat. Explore a vast sea of poetic realms that will enliven your art.


    Veronica Golos is the author of A Bell Buried Deep, co-winner of the Sixteenth Annual Nicholas Roerich Poetry Prize (Story Line Press, 2003),Vocabulary of Silence (Red Hen Press, 2011), and Rootwork (3: A Taos Press, 2015). Golos’s work is widely published and anthologized. An accomplished writing teacher, she has taught poetry and multi-genre writing nationwide.
