Poetry Workshop


This workshop will provide a writing community committed to celebrating one another’s work and offering suggestions for revision. A spirit of generosity will guide our discussion of your poems as well as our shared text, The Theme of Tonight's Party Has Been Changed by Dana Roeser. 

You will be expected to prepare written feedback on your peers’ work and submit at least two batches of 1-3 poems for our conversation. Over the course of six Tuesday evenings together, we will also discuss our workshop guidelines, optional writing prompts, and the revision process.

Tuition includes a new copy of Dana Roeser's The Theme of Tonight's Party Has Been Changed. Roeser has agreed to speak with workshop members about her poetry, writing practice, and the book.
