Award-winning Pittsburgh poet Toi Derricotte offers the last of a three-part series of workshops that invite writers of all levels to find their way into, and through, the difficult poem. Celebrated for writings that “push readers and practitioners into the hard work of seeing…,” Derricotte shares strategies for those ready to confront their most challenging work. Come ready for an illuminating and active process, guided by the influential writer, teacher, and cofounder of Cave Canem Foundation, which has been fostering talented writers since 1996.
