8-Week: Online Poetry Workshop

$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

This workshop focuses on your poems—writing them, reading them, listening to them, and discussing them. Every week we’ll take a close look at a few participants' poems or poetry-based projects in the middle stages of composition. At the same time, we’ll consider two or three published poems for hints as to how they tick. We’ll write new poems or pre-poems using brisk prompts and strange challenges. Throughout, we’ll discuss and think about the range of what poems might be and do. Join us at any stage in your exploration of poetry.

About Our Online Classes:

We use an online platform called Wet Ink. This platform allows you to post comments and critiques directly to the authors’ works (for 8-week workshops). You can also view deadlines, track revisions, and watch video or listen to audio. At the end of the class, each student will receive an email that contains an archive of all their content and interactions. Everyone who participates in an online workshop will also become part of the ongoing Lighthouse community within Wet Ink, where you can share and receive exercises and calls for submissions. Stay in touch with your fellow students (if you like) via the Lighthouse community when the class has ended.

By the end of the day on the Monday that class begins, you’ll receive an invitation to join Wet Ink. There are no browser requirements, and Wet Ink is mobile-friendly. If you have any questions about the technical requirements, please email [email protected].

Students are welcome to enroll up until the Friday of the starting week.
