Rebecca Morgan Frank Discovering New Directions: A Poetry Workshop Poetry August 8 to August 12, 2022 Number of Participants: 12 Price: $550.00 Format: 1 Week Asynchronous Workshop


Do you feel like you keep writing the same poem over and over, or that you aren’t sure how to begin new poems? Are you looking for community and support in expanding your poetic practice? Join us for this asynchronous generative workshop, in which we will use daily prompts and readings; informal research; and engagement with existing texts and artifacts to help you explore new avenues for drafting poems. We will seek out sparks for new work and find new directions, while also sharing feedback meant to encourage exploration through revision as well as drafting.

Optional Live Elements: Zoom reading at the end of the workshop to celebrate student work.
