Identifying mode in poems is a diagnostic and revision method that avoids one problem with a traditional workshop, an issue poet Natasha Saje calls, “arguing about paint color before the house is built.” In this workshop we define the four modes—lyric, narrative, argument, description—and read examples of each. Then we turn to participants’ poems, first identifying the dominant mode, and then asking whether the poem would be better served by a different one. Please bring copies of two poems that you’re unhappy with—you’ll choose one for discussion after you see Saje’s examples. Suitable for beginners and experienced poets alike.
