Poets looking for a group that includes guided practice in the creation of new work, or support for work on revisions, will find this a congenial workshop environment. The five-week session held Tuesdays June 18 through July 16 will include discussions of craft in the poetry of outstanding contemporaries, while sharing drafts, and developing fresh ideas for poems. Beginners are welcome. The fee for the poetry workshop is $150.
One recent participant commented, “My friends go off to Provincetown each summer for those $1,000 a week workshops and I could scarcely believe I’d found something in my price range right down the road that is every bit as good…with a teacher from whom I have much to learn.”
