New poetry and a workshop
Also on deck: the New Poetry Project will return this fall. I'll publish four new poems at Modern Confessional and across my social media platforms in October and November. Thousands of people read the eight poems I published online last year, so I can't wait to share even more new work. Stay tuned for more information.
I've been invited by the Decatur Writers Studio to teach a six-week poetry workshop starting in October. This will be a generative workshop for adults, so you'll leave each class with a poem (or two). We'll be writing persona, ekphrastic, and narrative poetry, among others, as well as exploring work by Anne Sexton, Adrienne Rich, Ted Kooser, Rita Dove, Sharon Olds, Alice Walker and more contemporary poets. Sign-up for my workshop will be coming soon.
