Marcus Jackson Can Mentor Us

Hello All.

Marcus Jackson has expressed interest in being our professional mentor. He has studied poetry in college and in a masters program and phd program as well I believe. He has been published in the New Yorker (!). I took a workshop with him a few weeks ago and he's a good teacher.

He suggested charging $75.00 for a full day workshop, workshopping 2 poems and getting his handwritten comments. I think that's a fair price for a full day workshop with a professional, although I wonder who can afford it (I know I can't). Also, I found that a whole day of workshopping was too much for me. So I'm thinking of proposing 1/2 day sessions (and he could do two sessions in one day I guess with 2 different groups if he had enough interest). For $32.00.

Would you be interested and could you pay that fee for "lessons" from a master?  If the fee is too high for you, how much could you afford? Does Saturday work for you or would you like to be able to meet with him in the evenings somewhere?

(Kristen, if this happens I will get a Brentwood Library card so you don't have to worry about doing the bookings.)
