Suggestions for writing poetry that’s creative, concise and clear

Dr. Weems started writing poetry when she was thirteen, and poetry remains her first way of responding to the world, documenting her lived experiences, and speaking truth to power. To date, Weems has had two full collections and five chapbooks published. Beginning and experienced poets will have the opportunity to write new work, ask questions about Weems’s creative process and share their own. Participants are asked to bring one, one-page original poem to share.

Writer in Residence Dr. Mary E. Weems is a poet, playwright, author, performer, imagination-intellect theorist and social/cultural foundations scholar. She is the author of 13 books, including Blackeyed: Plays and Monologues; Writings of Healing and Resistance: Empathy and the Imagination-Intellect; and Public Education and the Imagination-Intellect: I Speak From the Wound in My Mouth. Her five chapbooks include white, and she has written numerous poems, articles and book chapters.

Dr. Weems received a 2015 Cleveland Arts Prize for her full-length drama MEAT, and her play Another Way to Dance won Cleveland Public Theatre’s Chilcote Award. Both of her books of poems – For(e)closure and An Unmistakable Shade of Red and the Obama Chronicles – were finalists for Ohioana Book Awards. She has also been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
