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.
