The Inward Side with Jim Peterson

25.00

In this seminar I will discuss finding, losing and yet maintaining focus in a poem, and will draw on examples from several poets. It’s essential to establish a central thread but it’s also essential to move away from it. If a poem is “too much on the nose,” then the strangeness and mystery goes out of it. The outward side of a poem is the action and imagery; the inward side is a movement away from the exterior toward insight or understanding. I will have a writing exercise or two for us to explore this concept.
