D.A. Powell teaches poetry in the MFA program at USF, and is the recipient of many awards and grants, including a Guggenheim. His latest book is Useless Landscape, or a Guide for Boys: Poems. For poets, he says, the encounter with language is a sensual experience; the shaping of words and ideas excites our pleasure receptors. He will focus on all kinds of "doubling" in poetry, from couplets to metaphors, and discuss ways to double the pleasure of our own poems through vision and revision.
