Sarah Stern

In this workshop you will learn about some key forms of poetry and have the chance to work on your own.  Is the nonsense poem really nonsensical? And what to erase (or keep) in an erasure poem?
Learn the histories and rules of these forms and others then break them in this interactive and supportive six-session workshop. Each week you will study and read examples of different poetry forms and then write your own poems with prompts. You will 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 who wish to bring their writing to the next level.

Please register in advance and the program link and discussion materials will be sent to you. Class size limited to ten.
