Master Class Description

Join us as we explore both the mysterious magical place where poetry might come from and learn about craft–the writer’s intention.  We will read a lot of poetry (yours and others), workshop your poems, and do some writing exercises to jog the creative parts of our brains.  Most importantly, we will have fun!  Bring a notebook and/or laptop, your imagination, and an open mind, and hopefully you will leave with new poems, new inspiration, new friends, and ideas for future poems.

Skill level

Suitable for all writers–all genres, all levels (no experience or a lot of experience).
