Register by: FRIDAY, AUGUST 2, 2019

Have you got a stack of poetry that you’d like to share with other writers? Are you interested in meeting other writers? Are you curious about how to critique poetry? Do you need motivation to edit and revise your poetry? In this Poetry Seminar, writers will gather to read and critique each other’s poetry with the intention of offering support for the writing process. Editing and revising is a critical part of the writing process that can be tough to get through without outside support.

In this poetry seminar, writers will submit up to 5 poems (one page each poem or 5 pages in total) each week that will be copied and shared with the other writers. Writers will have the week to read and critique each other’s writing. Classes will be held seminar-style – in that the session is strictly for critiquing. The goal of this class is offer a space and time for writers to gather to share their poetry, receive compassionate, kind, critical critiques that can be used for editing and revision. Edited and revised poems can absolutely be submitted during the session. (Example – if you want to edit/revise a poem based on the first week’s critiques, you may do so and submit it for the following week.)

In this class writers will:

  • learn how to compassionately, kindly and critically critique poetry
  • gain insight on their poetry based on this critiquing
  • have the opportunity to edit & revise their poetry

This class includes:

  • binder with critiquing information/forms
  • pen
  • poetry for each week
  • information on submissions for poetry
  • light refreshments

There is a limit of 5 writers for this class to ensure that we have sufficient critiquing time for each writer.
