Never write alone and yet be only yourself. Write with form, with constraints, but find your own shape; your own relationship to constraints. Good writing usually has two qualities: intense familiarity and surprise. A good sentence often changes direction completely midway through. In the sea of language sometimes all one needs to do is steer into the swell. In this workshop we’ll discover tactics for weathering.

Sina Queyras is the author of the poetry collections My Ariel (2017), MxT (2014), Expressway (2009), Lemon Hound (2006), and most recently, Rooms: Women, Writing, Woolf (2022), all from Coach House Books.
