Winter Online Poetry Workshops

Give yourself a gift this holiday season!  I'll be leading three different month-long online workshops in the new year, beginning mid-January. Here's the scoop:


ONLINE POETRY WORKSHOP I
4 Mondays, beginning 13 January 2014
Led by Bernadette Geyer, via The Writer's Center

Don't just sit around waiting for the muse. For four weeks, this workshop will provide inspiration for generating new poems. Lessons will be posted weekly, featuring example poems and links to additional reading. Participants will share and comment on each other's work and will receive individual feedback from the workshop leader. For more details, and to register, click here.


ONLINE POETRY WORKSHOP II
4 Mondays, beginning 17 February 2014
Led by Bernadette Geyer, via The Writer's Center
All Levels
$195.00 (TWC members receive a discount)

For participants who have already completed Online Poetry Workshop I, this workshop will provide additional topics for generating new poems, along with ideas for resuscitating old drafts. Lessons will be posted weekly, featuring example poems and links to additional reading. Participants will share and comment on each other's work and will receive individual feedback from the workshop leader. For more details, and to register, click here.


THE ART OF REVISION (an online poetry workshop)
4 Mondays, beginning 24 March 2014
Led by Bernadette Geyer, via The Writer's Center
All Levels
$195.00 (TWC members receive a discount)

Poets often have folders full of poem drafts they've abandoned because, while they believe the draft has promise, they can't seem to figure out how to move the draft in the right direction. In this workshop, we will explore ways to "rethink" stubborn drafts in order to breathe new life into them and ultimately -- as Samuel Taylor Coleridge said -- put "the best words in the best order."
