Publicity material for this event says:

12-3.30 pm: Masterclass - Critical workshop with D. Nurkse

Dennis Nurkse (b. New Jersey, educ. Harvard) teaches in the MFA Programme at Sarah Lawrence College, has taught poetry at Brooklyn College, The New School, Rutgers University & Rikers Island Correctional Facility: Brooklyn Poet Laureate from 1996 to 2001 & recipient of a number of major awards & fellowships, he has published many collections with Knopf in US & CB Editions in the UK.

Dennis describes his Troubadour Sunday Gallery masterclass as follows: 'This workshop will emphasize in-depth humanistic discussion of each participant's work. Topics we might bring up in the course of investigation: painters have tricks to create perspective; how do poets use language to create figure and ground, a sense of depth in the mental picture the poem conveys? What makes a poem build? But our goal will be to meet each poem on its own terms.'
