Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundation for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before. – Audre Lourde
Poetry writing, largely, is a solitary endeavor. This workshop will provide the opportunity for poets, both beginning and practiced, to share their work with other poets in a collegial and supportive environment. We will concentrate on sharpening the impact of your poems through careful consideration of their strengths and their limitations. Optional take-home writing exercises will give you the opportunity to explore the myriad forms poetry can take. Bring 10 copies of a recent poem (no more than two pages long) to the first session.

Tom Daley a published poet, tutors poets, and has extensive poetry workshop experience.
