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—and providing you with inspiration and support to help you continue down your unique creative path. Every week we'll take a close look at the poems or poetry-based projects of a few participants in the middle stages of composition, as well as study a few contemporary published poems to see how they innovate, challenge, and compel us as readers and writers. Throughout, the instructor will provide generative prompts based on the week’s reading, and we'll have lively discussions about the power and potential of the art that we love. 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.
