Summer Poetry Kickstart

Dates: Every other Thursday — June 2, 16, 30, July 14, 28,  August 11, 25.
Time: 10 am-12 pm
Location: Zoom
Tuition: $49
Pre-registration is required. 
Energize your writing this summer with this no-pressure writing series for poets of all levels.
No pressure means no assignments, no deadlines, no critiques! Just a short lesson on fundamentals with a close read of an example poem, then private writing time.
Writing together can be a game-changer, even on Zoom. If you don’t yet have a writing routine, it’s a great way to start one. If your regular writing tends to slack during the summer, being accountable to a like-minded group can  get you back in the groove.
A prompt will be offered, but you’ll be free to work on whatever you want. We’ll check back in with each other toward the end for a few minutes of optional sharing.
This class has no prerequisites or limits on class size. All are welcome.
