Summer Workshop Program 2023
In this workshop we will generate work based on art. Expect to walk away with four new poems. I will respond to the first poems from each student and we will workshop the last two poems in class. Each day will consist of a mini lecture, in-class writing, and workshopping. Students will have the same and sufficient amount of workshop time for an encouraging critique.
Please submit 3 poems to email@example.com by June 26 to present an idea of your writing level and style.
