Introducing One-on-One Poetry Intensives 

with Sara London, WTP Poetry Editor

Author of the poetry collections The Tyranny of Milk and Upkeep (forthcoming in 2019), both from Four Way Books. Her poems have appeared in The Hudson Review, Poetry East, The Iowa Review, the Poetry Daily Anthology, The Common, and many other journals. She is also the author of two children's books, and has reviewed children’s literature for The New York Times Book Review. She earned an MFA at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and later worked at Scribner’s, as fiction editor at Seventeen magazine, and as poetry editor at Special Report. She teaches creative writing and literature at Smith College. www.saralondonwriter.com


This is a masterclass for anyone who has been writing poems and is eager to revise her/his/their way to even stronger work. Writing effective poems involves a uniquely delicate dance of control and surrender. An initial spark — an image, memory, idea, or language itself — may launch us on a poem with confidence, yet ultimately usher us toward some unexpected wilderness. How do we navigate that line of tension between clear purpose and a poem’s surprising wild side? How do we follow a path of compelling illumination and bring a poem to resonant conclusion? We’ll take a close look at matters of subject, imagery, diction, lineation, rhythm, tone, and more. Students will receive written feedback on work (submitted in advance), tips for future revisions, and reading recommendations. (Number of poems to be determined in pre-conference communication.)

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS FOR SUBMISSION TO INTENSIVES ONLY. FOR SUBMISSIONS TO OUR MAGAZINE, PLEASE SEE REGULAR POETRY SUBMISSION FORM.
