Jersey Plums: A Weekly Poetry Workshop

  • Calling all poets! Jersey City Writers is now offering a weekly poetry workshop. 

    This workshop will start by critiquing two poems, one by each person signed up ahead of time. The workshop will end, if time permits, with one or two 10 minute writing prompts (an idea to incorporate into a poem written on the spot).  Poets who sign up to be workshopped must email Sarah poem by 10am Friday so she can print copies for the group. To sign up for a workshop in advance, please contact Sarah Jewell at [masked]. 

    While workshopping poems, we will “mind our P’s and Q’s” by Praising first what works in a poem, and then Questioning what might be improved. This helps to keep the feedback positive and constructive. If you are new to critiquing poetry, please see these guidelines:
