Pay attention to every word and make it count! Read closely and critically and make your work stronger! Polish your work and send it out!
Wordplay: We will start with a craft discussion (mainly poetry, language, technique and form) based on samples from a handout, read your poems/pieces and offer helpful critiques. The instructor will provide focused comments and suggestions on your work. Prose fiction, CNF, memoir, hybrid forms, experimental work and anything in between welcome! Writers preparing work for publication or those just beginning to explore different kinds of writing--all will benefit from this fast-paced workshop!
Bring 4-6 pages of prose (one continuous piece/work) double spaced, 12 point font, preferably Times New Roman
or 1-2 pages of poetry (one poem), single spaced, 12 point font, preferably Times New Roman
*If for any reason you are unable to attend a session, I will email you the handout, and I'll critique one poem (upto 2 pages, 12 point Times New Roman, single spaced) or a piece/prose (upto 6 pages, 12 point Times New Roman, double spaced) sent to me by the end of the week.

A detailed reading of a book of poetry chosen by me. (I may choose fiction or nonfiction too). You will buy and read the book in advance, make notes, think of some questions (micro and macro) to talk about in class. We will meet to discuss theme/s, craft, technique, voice, specific poems/passages, etc. in detail, as well as study the arrangement of the poems in the book.
This class will be helpful to anyone interested in :
a deeper study of literature with a focus on language and form
a critical appreciation/study of poetry/literature
becoming a more informed reader and writer
working on writing/publisihing chapbooks/books
We will meet for two and half hours, depending on the size of the group, and the cost will be $45.
