What we're about

Welcome to the Hell's Kitchen Poetry Society, where we'll be cooking up new work every month! Each month we will write from 2-3 poetry prompts, each one followed with an optional sharing session. As this is fresh work being shared, there will be no critique (only encouragement if you like a line of someone's writing).

The moderator, Sarah T. Jewell, has been moderating weekly poetry workshops for over 3 years. She is the author of the chapbook, How to Break Your Own Heart (dancing girl press), and also a past winner of The Writer's Hotel Sara Patton Poetry Stipend (June 2018).

Sarah also offers small, intensive poetry workshops via application only. Contact Sarah at stjewell@gmail.com for more information.

Hell's Kitchen Poetry Society ONLINE

Online event

Each week we will critique 2-3 poems (one each from two or three different poets who sign up ahead of time by emailing Sarah - [masked] ), and then participate in one writing exercise with optional sharing. This group is meant for poets to give feedback to each other in a supportive environment. No matter our writing level or publication credits, we are all peers, and we can help each other develop our craft.
