This will serve as the formal announcement of…my first virtual poetry workshop!
“The Poetry Of Place” will be held via Zoom on Sunday, January 22nd, 2023 at from 2 PM to 4PM EST.
In this workshop, we will look at how incorporating vivid, arresting sensory imagery can stimulate and energize your writing. We’ll look at examples of such poems and at some ideas about why this kind of effort is vital to The Work regardless of genre. (While we’ll be focused on poetry, you can use this information in long fiction, short fiction, etc., just as easily.)
Although the workshop will include some writing exercises and opportunities to share, it’s not primarily designed to be a generative session; I hope that instead you’ll leave with some ideas and a sense of what is possible when you “ground” your own Work in a strong sense of place.
For the record? I’ve got 30+ years of experience as a trainer and workshop facilitator for various corporations, non-profits, and government agencies, but this will be the first time I’ll use those skills for a personally developed topic. It likely won’t be the last…
The cost to the general public* is $35.00 for the session, payable through:
(if asked for a # after that, it’s 4124)
Last day to join up is Friday, January 20. **
I’d love to see you there. Drop me a line through here or at the above email address with any questions.
*Patrons of my Patreon site in the $10/month or higher tiers may attend for free.
** For security reasons and to help prevent Zoom bombing, I will send participants the Zoom link once payment is made or (for Patrons) once a confirmation message is sent to me on the site.

I know Friday is almost over but was hoping to join the workshop on Sunday if it’s not too full. Sounds similar I think to one you led previously which was interesting. Thanks. Robin

Venmo is about as easy as using PayPal. If you go to the site it walks you through the process. I prefer it myself.
