**Eight-week poetry workshop: "The Roughed Edges"**

The fall installment of the 2011 poetry workshop series, "The Roughed Edges" is as much about smoothing out our verse as it is about honoring and illuminating the imperfections, the stunted seeds, and places where the glittering happens to be fractured glass. Sometimes the magic resides in spots where friction burns brightest, those moments in a poem where readers -- and their writers -- often turn away. During this eight-week critique and generative workshop, we'll summon the alchemy in order to engage ourselves and our readers around these sharper subjects and images.
