How do you take authentic, wild, even mean risks in your work? How do you reveal yourself as sloppy, flawed, even unlikable while keeping a distant reader engaged? Is there a "right" way to be mean in poetry? If so, how do we arrive there? 

Join me for this lively webinar and sneak-peek of my January Larksong class; we'll explore how we can present ourselves at our most flawed while still retaining ethics and even likability! Together, we'll discuss various poets who manage to dare greatly and keep us captivated. All the while, we'll ask ourselves and each other: what saves the speaker of the poem? Why do we keep reading? Do we always need to be correct, humane, or ethical in our poems? How can we be compassionate, complicit, and even cruel without losing our readers in the process? For the last half hour of class, we will write our own “mean-person personae” through a series of guided writing prompts. We’ll have a wonderful time!
