JUNE 6 – JULY 25 – POETRY WORKSHOP – ALL AGES
Mondays 7 – 9 PM
AFTER THE BEGINNING: WHAT’S NEXT?
Taught by Georgia Popoff
Participants in this 8-week session will examine their work through a series of lenses, each leading to further development and revision. As each element of literary devices and considerations is introduced, poems will transform and reveal. In the spirit of discovery and collaborative growth, there will be an opportunity to workshop some of the work as a “best test.” We will also examine poets whose work exemplify any of the various lenses we will use to answer three basic questions: What? Then What? and So What? as we employ poetic craft to bring a poem to its fullest potential. For even the seasoned poet, these considerations strengthen the keen eye needed in effective revision.
COST TO YOU (THANKS TO OUR FUNDERS): $250
ACTUAL COST: $600
Scholarships available to those in need.
