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.

Poetry Writing Bootcamp for Beginners

Designed especially for poetry novices, this workshop is “basic training” for those interested in writing poetry but aren’t sure where to begin. This workshop is for beginners (or “beginners-plus”), and focuses on giving and receiving constructive feedback on our work, as well as offering exercises, writing prompts, and some tips on how to read poetry, as we learn some basic techniques.  Bring a poem to share at the first meeting; if you don’t have one, that’s okay too, as we’ll be writing in class! Get comfortable with a tall glass of lemonade and start writing!  For adults 18+.

As a poet with many years of teaching experience, Joan Kruger offers many skills related to creative writing, fiction, critical thinking, composition, writing for publication and reviews of the arts. Editing and technical writing round out her experience.
