“I want the participants . . . to participate in the larger conversation of poetry”

I like to have a balance of reading poems and writing poems in every workshop. I’ll bring a poem for us to explore in various ways—e.g. through dictation and discussion; through theater-based exercises—because I want the participants, no matter their “comfort level” with poetry, to participate in the larger conversation of poetry, not just in a conversation about their poems. Only after we’ve spent a good amount of time exploring this poem, will I give a writing prompt based on some aspect of it.
