Revision and the Poetic Process

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Montana Poet Laureate Michael Earl Craig will reveal the intricacies of his poetic process, using images and drafts to display how what might read like a simple poem actually involves multiple rounds of detailed consideration.  As Dara Wier writes of Earl Craig: "He represents a perfect combination of so many of the things poetry exists to do: honor humanity, honor place and time, honor the dead, console the living, entertain us, delight us, and lend us hopes and dreams."
