FUTURE WORKSHOPS

Five Forms in Five Weeks

IMG_4832.JPG

In this five week workshop participants will explore forms ranging from the sonnet to the miniature, the letter to the villanelle, the ghazal to the golden shovel.  We will study how  contemporary writers crack traditional forms open and use these forms' insides to thicken their own voices (and present day concerns) with echoes of the past.  Each week participants will write in a new form.     

Wednesdays / April 11, 18, 25 / May 2, 9 /9:45-12:45  

Weekly reading and writing assignments will guide you.  All levels welcome.

This workshop is $315.  FULL payment is required to hold your spot. Register HERE and reserve your space right away.

Recommended readings TBA
