About the Event

The poetic you can be notoriously slippery—pointing to speaker, reader, or beloved; to “one" or the other. Combine this slipperiness with a readiness to change (and be changed by) the poem's voice and syntax, and the second person becomes a powerful tool for poets interested in the speaker's relationships with reader, self, and other. Together we'll read, write, and experiment, exploring the many possibilities (and a few pitfalls) of the second person.
