John Murillo Gimme the Loot: How to Steal Like a Poet

Wednesday, Aug 10, 2022 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm


In this class, we will explore strategies by which poets may enrich their own art by deliberately imitating their favorites… and their favorites’ favorites! We will discuss such topics as voice, influence, and originality, as well as the imperative of serving a serious apprenticeship. Participants should bring to this workshop either a few passages from their one favorite writer, or one passage each from a few of their favorite writers.
