Write On! A Workshop for Young Poets (ages 16 – 22)

Date: Saturday, March 26th
Time: 10:00am to 2:30pm
Cost: $20
Limited to: 8 Participants
Where: Zoom

Maybe it’s time to come out into the light. You know who you are. You’re the one with pages of writing hidden under your bed and stuffed into your pockets—journal entries, the beginning of a story, a few lines of poetry. In this half-day class, you’ll be given writing prompts, time to write, and kind, constructive feedback, while your workshop mates listen. The gathering will be conducted in an atmosphere of mutual support and inquiry. Curious minds rule. Before we meet, I’ll send you a short packet of poems to read; we’ll talk about some of them in the workshop. You’ll go home with drafts of several new poems.

Fridays, weekly, April 1st - May 6th 

The Art and Craft of Poetry: A Generative Workshop

Dates: Fridays, April 1st - May 6th
Time: 2:30pm to 4:30pm
Cost: $225
Limited to: 8 Participants
Where: Zoom

This six-week workshop offers a chance to strengthen your writing practice and begin new poems. We’ll read and discuss poems by contemporary writers, you’ll write new drafts based on prompts, and I’ll provide feedback (if you’d like) while your workshop mates listen. We’ll explore forms like persona poems, sonnets, braided poems, and prose poems, with an eye to the art and craft of poetry, and consider revision, music and rhythm, and the act of listening deeply for what the poem under the poem is trying to say. The intention of the weekly workshop is to create a supportive atmosphere that encourages and builds a community of poets on the Olympic Peninsula and beyond.

In Pope Marine Park in Port Townsend, reading with Gary Copeland LilleyLauren Davis, and Matthew Nienow. I'm a huge fan of their work. Fresh air! The Bay behind us! Ferry boats! Horse tail clouds! A great night of poetry.

Oh traveler, what if the far river had not been created?
Where then would you dream of going?
