Alice B Fogel is the Poet Laureate of New Hampshire (2014-2019). In addition to Strange Terrain, a guide to appreciating poetry without necessarily "getting" it, she is the author of four poetry collections, including Interval: Poems Based on Bach's Goldberg Variations (2015), which won the Nicholas Schaffner Award for Music in Literature and the recent New Hampshire Literary Award in Poetry, and Be That Empty, a national bestseller. A nine-time Pushcart nominee and recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship and other awards, her poems appear in many journals and anthologies, including Best American Poetry and Poet’s Choice, and her new collection, A Doubtful House, is forthcoming in April 2017. She works with learning disabled students at Landmark College in Putney, VT, and hikes mountains whenever possible.

 

PUTTING TOGETHER YOUR POETRY MANUSCRIPT

You've written a whole lot of poems and are ready to see if or how they will work together as a chapbook or a full-length book. This workshop will help you think about how to organize a collection in such a way that it becomes its own work of art. We'll look at thematic, structural, emotional, stylistic, and other aspects involved in creating a balanced experience of unity and variety for a reader. When you come, bring a couple of other authors' poetry books, to talk about what works or doesn't work in their presentation, and bring your own collection of poems (20-60, on paper) and any notes, thoughts, or questions you have on putting it together as a book.
