Now We’re Cookin’: Recipes for Revising Half-Baked Poems

Playful revision techniques for all poets.

Revising a poem can be as engaging as writing one. We all have some stubborn poems that haven’t jelled or that seem close but for some reason just don’t hit the mark. Bring three separate copies of one or two of your own poems you wish to revise. Together we’ll try out ideas to see our poems with fresh eyes and have fun in the process.

Marion Starling Boyer is a poet and essayist with three published poetry collections: The Clock of the Long Now (Mayapple Press) and two chapbooks, Green (Finishing Line Press) and Composing the Rain (Grayson Books). Her fourth book, The Sea Was Never Far, was released by Main Street Rag in the spring of 2019.

Boyer’s work has been nominated for a Pushcart, the Lenore Marshall Award, and the “Best of the Net.” Her essays have been published by Great Lakes Review, Paddler Magazine, The Tishman Review, Canoe and Kayak and others. She is a professor emeritus of Kalamazoo Valley Community College and has recently moved from Michigan to the Cleveland area. Boyer has conducted poetry workshops for the Kalamazoo Poetry Festival, the Wisconsin’s Washington Island Writers Festival, Lit Cleveland, and Lit Youngstown’s Winter Writing Camp.
