You Can Do It: A Poetry Workshop for Beginners, and Others with Suzanne Cleary via Zoom

Our Writers Center community and neighbors have requested an Introduction to Poetry Writing workshop, and here it is! This workshop is an introduction to writing poetry, designed for those who are brand new to writing poetry, and also for those who want to reenergize their poems by revisiting the basics. With a focus on core poetic techniques, we will read model poems and use them as the basis for writing exercises and weekly assignments.  Expect a supportive circle of writers, and lots of advice, tips, and even (should I say this?) tricks.

This class will be taught via Zoom on six consecutive Mondays. The Zoom link will be emailed at the time of registration. (Please check spam / promotions filters and write to ask@writerscenter.org with any questions.) Please register at:
