Poetry Workshop: Explore, Expand & Encourage Your Writing Practice
4 weeks / $50
In this 4-week online workshop you will find an encouraging environment in which you can experiment with new forms, play with language and imagery, generate new material, and invigorate your writing process. You will be inspired by readings and discussions of craft, the poems of other workshop participants, and a variety of generative writing prompts to get you started. As an online community, we will respond to each other’s work, offering feedback on what works and areas that could be strengthened with the goal of expanding your writing practice and writing community.
Who Should Take This Class
This class is appropriate for those with any amount of experience writing poetry, from those who are interested in learning more and might be a bit nervous about it, to writers with years of experience who want to generate new work and brush up on elements of craft and be exposed to new contemporary writers.
This is an online class. Each week we will (1) discuss poem(s) written by a contemporary poet, (2) generate new work inspired by a writing prompt/exercise, and (3) workshop our poems, offering feedback to others and sharing your own work. Students should expect to spend 1+ hour per week perusing readings, participating in discussions, engaging writing prompts, and responding to peers’ work. From our interactions, we sustain a welcoming and inspiring community together.
Week by Week
The new readings, writing prompts, and discussions will be made available to you every Wednesday with the intention that they will be completed by the following Tuesday evening. You will, however, be able to go back and review previous weeks for the duration of the course.
Week 1, September 20-September 26
Week 2, September 27-October 3
Week 3, October 4-October 10
