Workshops and Classes

From hands-on workshops exploring new materials and techniques to professional development programs and networking opportunities, our commitment to providing resources for Baltimore artists has been part of our mission from day one.

Thu Apr 25


A workshop in two parts.

Part One: Spring Cleaning, in which we edit poems already written. Does it have some unwanted or problematic lines that need to be thrown out? Perhaps a few words need revamping. Maybe the whole poem needs a complete overhaul. We provide each other with ideas and suggestions for improving each other’s work through positive, supportive, and constructive feedback.

Part Two: New Growth. The second three weeks consists of intensive new writing, both in class and at home. Going into April, National Poetry Month, we pull new work up from the soil of our imagination and experiences, using traditional and experimental forms and techniques to generate a bumper crop of new work, as well as plant seeds for future harvest of poetic fruits.
