The Wonder of the Short Poem ($39/49)

If you tend to write long, narrative poems or find that you write to trim away, I invite you to explore the wonder and challenge of the short lyric with me. We will discuss short poetic forms such as the haiku and tanka, poems by Lucille Clifton, Carl Phillips, Salvatore Quasimodo, Bill Knott and others, as well as complete generative exercises. All levels of experience are welcome. Our aim will be to leave with a new short poem draft.

Angela Siew is a multilingual poet with a BA from Brown University and an MFA from Emerson College. She was most recently a Peter Taylor Fellow for the 2023 Kenyon Review Writers Workshop and has received support from the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, the City of Boston and the Community of Writers Poetry Workshop. Her work has been published in Salamander, Crab Orchard Review and Art New England, among others. A chapbook, Coming Home, will be published by Cut Bank (University of Montana) in 2024. A former private tutor and English language teacher, she has also taught overseas in Chile and Italy.  Learn more at
