Jump-start your poetry via an on-line workshop


Can’t physically get to one of the summer writing workshops at Yale, Wesleyan, Breadloaf, Iowa, etc? Consider taking an online workshop.

Online workshops can be a good way to force oneself into doing the good, hard work necessary for developing oneself as a writer.  I’ve taken a couple myself at the Lighthouse Writer’s Workshop, as I found it hard to get myself back into writing after I had a kid. (Deadlines can be wonderful!)  This summer I’ll be taking one from a place called “The Poetry Barn” on creating literary hybrids, as I’m an essayist with a poetry background and am hoping it might free me to go into some new directions….I’ll blog more about the workshop throughout July.

For those interested, here are three places that are offering workshops this summer:

Starting July 3 at the Poetry Barn: 

July 10 – At the Lighthouse Writers Workshop:


July 19 – At the Gotham Writers Workshop:
