In Craft Talks at the Dodge Poetry Festival, individual poets consider and discuss questions related to the craft of making poems. These conversations range from the general (What is the larger purpose of craft? What are the rewards of trying to master it?) to the specific (How do work schedules, patterns of revision, the uses of traditional forms, the subtleties of line breaks or the place of sound and phrasing in composition come into play when considering craft?).
We hope that the videos in this playlist provide helpful for anyone who is considering these questions about craft.
