Prompts for Poets Weekend Workshop

Poems for the Writing: Prompts for Poets

Valerie Fox and Lynn Levin, co-authors of the new craft-of-poetry text Poems for the Writing: Prompts for Poets (2013), will conduct a weekend workshop exploring several of the unique prompts in their book.

We have within us our own stories, memories, and artistic influences—the subject matter for poems—and often all we need is the right kind of creativity-boosting prompt to help us shape that material into a poem. We will find inspiration and guidance in these classroom and workshop tested prompts. A fun, positive, and supportive workshop, which will include some in-class writing and sharing.

Class enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. Since many classes fill quickly; we encourage you to enroll early. Your enrollment is complete when full payment for tuition has been received.
