(Or How to Write a Better Political Poem)

Students will leave the four-week session with five revised poems. Please bring one poem to the first session on any topic. Together students will write four more poems through the four- week session and compile a chapbook. We will focus on craft not content in this poetry workshop, and explore how employing white space, caesuras, the em dash and elliptical poetry can strengthen your poems. We will read and study C.D. Wright, Simon Ortiz, Allison Adelle Hedge Coke, Adrienne Rich and Jean Valentine.

Angie Trudell Vasquez received her MFA in poetry from the Institute of American Indian Arts in May 2017. In 2016, she was a poetry panelist at Split This Rock! Her poems have been published most recently in the Yellow Medicine Review, the San Diego Poetry Annual 2015-2016, Subtle Forces, and Return to the Gathering Place of the Waters. She has work forthcoming in the Raven Chronicles and Cloudthroat. She was nominated for a Pushcart in 2014 for her essay, “The Making of the Latina Monologues.” Since 2005 she has worked for the ACLU of Wisconsin and developed their youth poetry program. Her work has been performed on stage in Portland, Oregon, and Wisconsin. Her op eds have reached millions. She has her own press, Art Night Books, and has self-published two collections of her own work, The Force Your Face Carries and Love in War Time.
