Words in Progress: Advanced Poetry Workshop @ GNV

Workshop meets on April 4, April 18, May 2, May 16, and 30

Barbara Ungar will facilitate this five-part workshop for seasoned poetry writers (ages 18+). A prompt will be given before the first class, and at the end of each class for the following session. Consider the prompt as a spring-board to dive off from: if it inspires a poem you'd like to workshop, that's wonderful. If not, bring in any other poem you would like to work on.  We will workshop one poem by each participant per session, so our discussion will be limited by time, depending on the number of participants.

Barbara Ungar, an English professor at The College of Saint Rose, has authored books of poetry including "immortal Medusa" and "Charlotte Brontë, You Ruined My Life."

To register, go to the April 4th calendar entry.
