Class Description: Poetry Salon workshops are a fun, nurturing environment where advanced writers come to share work and develop their craft. Here students deepen their writing practice by learning how to not only write- but rewrite, how to listen to their work and the work of others with a trained ear, how to provide and receive supportive critique and practice the art of revision. Whether you are writing for publication or for personal fulfillment, you will find a supportive environment and a group of fellow writers and editors to help you develop greater confidence and wonder as you master this most mysterious art form here at The Poetry Salon.

nspired by the work of bold, contemporary poets such as Hieu Minh Nguyen, Ocean Vuong, Richard Siken and Patricia Smith, this three-hour generative workshop will use purpose, potency and power to ignite poetry that addresses social justice and the issues we face today.

Join us if you want to create art that can uproot conventions, challenge the powerful and inspire critical and vital change in our world.
