Poetry Boot Camp

Jump-start your new year the write way during February Is the Cruelest Month Poetry Boot Camp! In this three-week, online class, you’ll generate new work through a series of prompts designed to exercise your creative muscles. You’ll leave with nine new poems in progress and an expanded sense of what’s possible in your work. 

Limited to ten participants. Cost: $90

February 20-March 9.

Less Is More: Writing Micro

Registration is open now for the March 2020 Less Is More: Writing Micro! The four-week, online class will be limited to ten participants in order to guarantee an experience that is both fun and productive.

Here’s how it will go down: During the first two weeks of class, you’ll generate micros (fewer than 300 words) in response to each of six prompts. Each prompt will be preceded by a brief published piece as well as a short discussion of the aspects of craft — characterization, setting, point of view, structure, and beginnings – that are key to an effective piece of prose. 

During weeks three and four, you’ll revise and share two of your prompts in an informal workshop setting that (I promise!) will be both constructive and helpful. 

Class will officially start on Monday, March 23 and conclude on Monday, April 20. Cost is $110.
