The Art and Craft of Poetry: A Generative Workshop

Dates: Fridays, October 7th - November 11th
Time: 2:30pm to 4:30pm
Cost: $225
Limited to: 10 Participants
Where: Online

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 weekly workshop will foster a supportive atmosphere that encourages and builds a community of poets on the Olympic Peninsula and beyond.

​​Kathryn Hunt makes her home on the coast of the Salish Sea, on the ancestral lands of the S’Klallam, Chemakum, and Suquamish. Her poems have appeared in Orion, Radar, Terrain, Missouri Review, and Narrative, among other journals. Her second collection of poems Seed Wheel was published by Lost Horse Press in 2021 and a chapbook The Country I Come From was published by Refugia Press in 2022. She’s recently completed a memoir, The Matter of All Things. Kathryn Hunt has worked as a waitress, shipscaler, short-order cook, bookseller, food bank coordinator, filmmaker, and freelance writer.
