Creative Writing Workshops

We currently offer three workshops. Click on each title for more information.

1. GATHERING OF POETS WORKSHOP

This supportive and stimulating workshop series is designed for poets of all levels. Each session focuses on a different aspect of the poet’s craft, from metaphor to image to line to stanza to meter. The goal of these workshops is to provide participants with the time and space to develop their poetic craft, explore the poems they want to create, and be part of a supportive literary community that welcomes their voices and inspirations.​

2. GATHERING OF WRITERS WORKSHOP 

This series focuses on creating a supportive community of writers to foster the development of each writer's unique voice. Through discussion, modeling, prompts, and time for writing and sharing, we explore craft from all angles. The Gathering is open to all community members, all levels of writing experience, and all genres of writing.
