Summer Poetry Workshop I

In this 6-week workshop at the SF Creative Writing Institute, you will find inspiration, play, experiment with new forms and generate exercises, explore the craft of poetry, create and edit new work, and share and receive feedback, support, and encouragement in a relaxed, intimate environment.

This class is open to all levels of writers and all styles of poetry. Whether you’re already a published poet or you’ve never written a poem, this is an opportunity to establish, reestablish, or deepen your writing practice, find your way onto the page, learn new techniques and forms and connect to a thriving SF Bay Area writing community.
