The Poetry Workshop
THIS IS A 16-WEEK, 3-SEGMENT POETRY WRITING WORKSHOP. IT’S INTENDED FOR POETS WHO WANT TO WORK ON 10 TO 15 POEMS DURING THE COURSE (PERHAPS IN ORDER TO START A CHAPBOOK OR TO READY POEMS FOR MAGAZINE SUBMISSIONS). EACH SEGMENT INCLUDES AN INITIAL SUBMISSION WORKSHOP CYCLE AND A REVISION CYCLE. BOTH SUBMISSIONS IN THE CYCLE WILL BE READ AND REVIEWED BY ABOUT FOUR FELLOW POETS AND THE TUTOR.
The course includes an optional textbook and exercises, but these are not part of the curriculum. It’s all about the workshops.
Prerequisite: a college-level introduction to creative writing course, such as the one offered here, Creative Writing 1 at MAU, or the equivalent. A writing sample may be required.
This course may be repeated as many times as you like (with new poems, of course).
Price: €300 (SEK 3000/$300).
