Intermediate Poetry Workshop

January 6 - February 10, 2021
Wednesdays, 4:00-6:00 p.m. (six sessions)
online via Zoom


An individually focused poetry workshop designed to give committed writers a chance to meet, connect, and give and get feedback in a supportive, guided environment. Our focus: Personalized assignments and feedback suited to each poet’s needs. Reading recommendations and assignments, both from contemporary poets and essays on craft. Weekly in-class writing exercises. An understanding of what it’s like to make things and how writers tend to get stuck (and unstuck). A community of others committed to doing this strange and wonderful thing. A deep dive into the craft aspects of contemporary poetry. A focus on critique as we work to understand what each poem wants to become, then explore ways to help it get there.

Access Program
We want our writing classes to be accessible to everyone, regardless of income and background. We understand that our tuition structure can present obstacles for some people. Our Access Program offers writing class registrations at a reduced rate. The access program for writing classes covers 60% of the class tuition. Most writing classses have at least one access spot available. Contact Susan Moore at susan@literary-arts.org if you would like to take a writing class at the Access Rate.
