Generative Poetry Class

The goal of this new 6-week class is to invigorate your writing practice, get you on the page, and inspire you to write as many new first drafts as possible.  Each week we will come together to write, and each class will offer multiple prompts to work with, followed by the opportunity to share. The emphasis will be generative, as opposed to revision and feedback, which will be the focus of the next workshop in this 2-part series.  For poets of any level who want to make time to write, who are looking for community and accountability, and who like to write from prompts, this class is for you.    ...

Method Writing

We want to connect with the world. We want to share the life that is inside us. We want to write poetry and prose that speaks the truth and moves the reader. But where do we start? There’s a voice within all of us wanting to find its place in the world. The concepts and techniques in the Jack Grapes METHOD WRITING Program will lead you step by step, show you how to create compelling moments and scenes, how to move your reader with writing that jumps off the page and grabs them by the heart. In this 8-week workshop, we will focus on stripping away the artifice of writing, the baggage that keeps us from the most essential building block of any writing: the Deep Voice. We’ll turn journal entries into poems and stories, and by the end of the class, you’ll produce a “chapbook” of your work, turning process into product. This class focuses on weekly journal writing using the techniques and concepts of Method Writing. Suitable for both poets and prose writers, beginners and advanced, this class will help you find your deep voice and use it to create clear and compelling written work. ...

Poetry Revision Workshop

This workshop can be taken on its own or as a follow-up to Generative Poetry. The focus will be on deep feedback and revision of existing poems. The goal will be to evolve and refine each poets’ work toward publication in a generous and supportive environment.  If you have a manuscript in progress or a handful of partial poem drafts that could benefit from feedback, this is a chance to revisit and revise individual pieces in the company of other poets. You are also welcome to write new poems to workshop, but new work is not required. Each week students will submit a poem of their choosing for written feedback and read and reflect on their fellow poets’ work.  Time in class will be dedicated to workshopping student poems in small groups. Deep discussion and feedback will provide the opportunity to become a better poet, a more observant reader, and a more thoughtful editor of your own work and the work of others. ...
