Tyler Mills Poems That Travel—A Writing Residency at Home Poetry June 17 to June 21, 2024 Number of Participants: 12 Price: $550.00 Format: 1 Week Asynchronous Workshop

ASYNCHRONOUS with LIVE ELEMENTS:

Have you ever thought, “I’d love to do a writing residency, but I don’t have time, or am not able to travel right now?” Or maybe you’ve thought, “I want to get a lot done, but don’t want to write in isolation!” This is a friendly, but rigorous, community-based, one-week summer course you can take from your desk, garden, favorite café, or couch with the goal of setting you up to write five new poems in the span of a week. Yes, you can do it! You will write new poems based off of prompts inspired by movement and give and receive feedback on peer work while reading poems by Richard Blanco, Rita Dove, Elizabeth Bishop, and James Wright. At the end of the course, you will receive additional feedback from the instructor via a phone call (or synchronous chat). This summer, we travel through our poems and think about the ways language transports us.

Optional LIVE elements: We will hold an attendance-optional poetry reading via Zoom during the last day of the course to celebrate your work!
