How I Revise: Poetry with Danny Caine

June 13 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

How I Revise: Poetry with Danny Caine 
$75 | Jun 13, 7 PM + a 1-on-1 consultation (Consultations will be scheduled individually over the week following the June 13 workshop)
Location: ONLINE (Both the class and the consultation will take place via Zoom)

It’s hard to know when a poem is done. Harder yet is knowing that a poem is not done, but having little idea how to finish it, how to fix it, or how to make it sing.

In this intimate, two-part revision workshop, poet Danny Caine will lead a 90-min class in which he’ll share his revision philosophy and walk students through the editorial moves he makes when working on his own poems. In addition to the class, each student will also receive a 20-minute, one-on-one manuscript consultation with Danny Caine (up to 5 poems). He’ll read student work closely and provide ideas on how to push the writing toward completion and prepare it for publication.

Danny Caine is the author of the poetry collections Continental Breakfast, El Dorado Freddy’s, Flavortown, and Picture Window, as well as the book How to Resist Amazon and Why and How to Protect Bookstores and Why. His poetry has appeared in The Slowdown, DIAGRAM, HAD, and Barrelhouse, and his prose has appeared in Literary Hub and Publishers Weekly. In 2019, he received the Midwest Independent Bookstore Association Midwest Bookseller of the Year award. He’s a co-owner of the Raven Book Store, Publishers Weekly’s 2022 bookstore of the year.
