Poetry with Danusha Laméris
Spend each morning workshop (9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.) with Danusha Lameris and a small group of other poets. Each participant will submit up to 5 poems (not more than 10 pages) for review by the workshop group. The workshop will focus on poetic craft and is meant for poets intending to publish their work. The workshop meets four mornings (Mon.-Thurs.) and each participant will receive focused feedback from the group on their poems. Workshop packets with all submissions will be available for online download after July 15th. Optional participant readings will be held.
DANUSHA LAMÉRIS has been published or is forthcoming in Best American Poetry 2017, the New York Times, the American Poetry Review, the Gettysburg Review, Tin House, and the Sun, as well as in a variety of other journals and anthologies. Her first book, The Moons of August (2014), was chosen by Naomi Shihab Nye as the winner of the Autumn House Poetry Prize and was a finalist for the Milt Kessler Poetry Book Award.
"Danusha Laméris writes with definitive, savoring power – in perfectly well-weighted lines and scenes. Her poems strike deeply, balancing profound loss and new finding, employing a clear eye, a way of being richly alive with appetite and gusto, and a gift of distilling experience to find its shining core. Don't miss this stunning first book." - Naomi Shihab Nye
