Patricia Spears Jones Basic & Bold Poetry February 21 to February 25, 2022 Number of Participants: 12 Price: $575.00 Format: 1 Week - LIVE Zoom Workshop

LIVE via ZOOM: 6pm-8pm (Eastern Time)

We often take our skills for granted—and in doing so, fall into predictable patterns. This five day Zoom workshop will focus on poetry composition from the ground up: diction, syntax, address, lineation, even rhyme (maybe) to just bring a bit more sparkle to the polish of your poems. We will read contemporary poets, do in-class writing. The aim is joy in the making.


Patricia Spears Jones is an African American poet/playwright/anthologist/activist and author of The Beloved Community (Copper Canyon) and A Lucent Fire: New and Selected Poems (White Pine) and nine other poetry collections. She is the Poet Laureate for New York State and recipient of the 2017 Jackson Poetry Prize, NEA and NYFA grants, and the Foundation of Contemporary Arts award. She is organizer of American Poets Congress and Emeritus Fellow of Black Earth Institute.
