Around the Campfire: Nurturing Your Poetic Voice starts October 6

I am looking forward to teaching my latest online class, Around the Campfire: Nurturing Your Poetic Voice starting October 6!

I was inspired to create this class after reading an interview with the talented and inspiring @kamilahaishamoon in which she said, "Through poetry, we can transform ourselves and change others as we sit around each other’s poems like campfires for warmth and sustenance."

After reading this, I thought at length about how important it is for writers, poets, and artists to take care of ourselves in community, to join together to nourish each other's voices and visions- now, maybe, more than ever, as we navigate a world that is so difficult and that would prefer that many of us be silent.

So, I created this class as a campfire, to offer space for self-care, creativity, community, and robust opportunities for generating and sharing new work in a supportive environment. We will engage and respond to each other through discussion threads throughout each week and I will also facilitate weekly meetings through video conferencing. There are ample opportunities to connect with each other, share our work, and receive encouragement and feedback.

There's just over a week left to catch the early registration rate. Partial scholarships are available too!

As always, contact me for details and with any questions you may have.
