Lynn Levin and I are offering a workshop at Poets House (in NY). It’s a two-day intensive (4 hours on each day) happening on July 26/27 (Saturday 2-6/Sunday 12-4).
Here’s the workshop description:
We have within us our own stories, memories, and artistic influences—the subject matter for poems—and often all we need is the right kind of creativity-boosting prompt to help us shape that material into a poem. Valerie Fox and Lynn Levin, co-authors of the new craft-of-poetry text Poems for the Writing: Prompts for Poets (2013), will conduct a weekend workshop exploring several of the unique prompts in their book. We will find inspiration and guidance in these prompts, which are all classroom and workshop tested. This fun, positive, and supportive workshop will include some in-class writing and sharing. No poetry experience is required;
