Drop-In Poetry Workshop #6

Count Your Blessings

We are going through a phase of uncertainty and rapid change, surrounded by chaos and a flood of emotions. It’s been hard for me to tell one day from another, one feeling from its opposite. Journaling everyday has been my constant companion and I’d love to start up a writing hour with you. In this workshop we’ll get some of that emotional energy into words. We’ll read relevant works by other writers/poets and talk about the big and small blessings we miss to see. There will be writing prompts, time to scribe, share and build a space for ourselves we can keep returning to on our own.

The Jack Grapes METHOD WRITING Program

Finding Your Voice in Poetry & Prose

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 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.

The State of 21st Century Poetry

An intense survey of the rapidly evolving paradigm of poetic style and form in the age of social media. We will be primarily looking at American and English-speaking poets, but are open to examples from other cultures brought in by students. Students will be engaging in close readings and free-write prompts in an effort to develop their own modern style. We will share and critique work in a workshop format both online and via live sessions.
