Calling all poets!
This workshop will start by critiquing two poems, one by each person signed up ahead of time. Please note if you have never attended our poetry workshop before, you must attend a workshop at least once before you can be on the schedule. The workshop will end, if time permits, with one 10-15 minute writing prompt (an idea to incorporate into a poem written on the spot). Poets who sign up to be workshopped must email Anisa the poem by 10am Friday so she can print copies for the group. To sign up for a workshop in advance, please contact Anisa at [masked] .
While critiquing 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:
