Poetry Workshop

About

Have poem drafts that you are excited about but unsure of what to do with next? This workshop is for you!

The Poetry Revision Workshop will provide a writing community committed to celebrating one another’s work and offering suggestions for multiple rounds of revision. Our first workshop session will be a guided exploration of revision possibilities and exercises. In the weeks that follow, a spirit of generosity will guide our discussion of your revisions for a book manuscript and/or submission to literary magazines. Our final session will include a conversation and handouts on the submission process.


You will be expected to prepare written feedback on your peers’ work and submit one revision draft each week.Tuition includes the option to meet with Lauren for a 30-minute, one-on-one conference during the first and/or last week of the workshop.
