Conclusion

I hope you’ll consider the artifact form more than just a tool at your disposal, but a lens through which to see the world around you. If poetry is really everywhere, then so are the forms poems can appear in. These forms are fun to explore, but they’re also important to explore. Important to question, bend, break down, and hold up to the light. Sometimes, the medium is the message. Sometimes the medium is the magic. And sometimes it’s both.

Outside of this workshop, I would love to keep in touch with you. Please feel free to send me short work for feedback (though this may compel me to share some new work with you too), and please send me links to works you come across that fit into this strange category we’re all actively working to define.
