Images are the flesh and blood of poems—the concrete language that gives poems body. How do we create images that fix in the reader’s mind? How do we build original images that haven’t been “seen” before? And how do we make our images cinematically move? In this class, we’ll study and pick apart dynamic images from published works, then we’ll craft our own original images through a series of guided writing exercises.

Anders Carlson-Wee is the author of The Low Passions (W.W. Norton, 2019), a New York Public Library Book Group Selection, and Dynamite (Bull City Press, 2015), winner of the Frost Place Chapbook Prize. His work has appeared in The Paris Review, BuzzFeed, Ploughshares, Virginia Quarterly Review, and many other publications. The recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Poets & Writers, the McKnight Foundation, Bread Loaf, Sewanee, and the Napa Valley Writers’ Conference, he is the winner of the 2017 Poetry International Prize. His work has been translated into Chinese. Anders holds an MFA from Vanderbilt University and lives in Cincinnati. www.anderscarlsonwee.com
