Sarah Stern

When you begin working on a new poem, you likely have an idea of what it will be about. But often the poem rebels and moves in a completely different direction. How do you know when to follow the poem's mind or your own? This workshop will look at contemporary poems that wrestle with this issue and examine others with a particular emphasis on the process of revision. You will then write your own poems with prompts and have the opportunity to share your work and receive feedback. Beginning, emerging, and seasoned poets are welcome. This workshop is meant for those looking for an encouraging community of writers to help bring their writing to the next level.

Please register in advance and class link will be sent to you. Class size limited to 10.
