March 15 Deadline for Writer's Center Master Class with Rod Jellema

The deadline is quickly approaching for applications to participate in this special workshop with Rod Jellema at The Writer's Center:


The Fortnightly Poetry Consortium
Rod Jellema, Workshop Leader
Link:  http://www.writer.org/page.aspx?pid=353&__nccssubcid=13&__nccsct=Poetry&nccsm=21&__nccspID=1741

Application for this workshop is free. If you are accepted, you will be contacted for payment. Submission deadline: March 15. Maximum 12 participants.

Between each meeting, members agree to do at least 6 pre-poem exercises, 15 minutes maximum, using a list of recommended exercises. This provides a growing stock of favored words, images, phrases and lines from which each member will make one poem for each meeting.

Members will submit with the poem the initial exercise and a one-page “Work Sheet” tracing the process through which the poem was born. Discussion will focus more on the creative process than on the poem as an artifact. Members will be showing each other the infinity of possibilities and discoveries in creating freely with words.

Date: April 2, 16 and 30, May 14, June 4 and 18
Day: 6 Saturdays

Location: Bethesda

To be considered for this workshop, please submit 6 poems to: Rod Jellema Workshop, The Writer's Center, 4508 Walsh Street, Bethesda, MD 20815.
