This workshop is geared to anyone interested in writing new poetry, regardless of experience or publication history. Each workshop will consist of: reading established poets’ poems for inspiration (and to invite the spirit of writing to our group); presentation of prompt(s); time to write; time to share what we have written; time for discussion/field questions regarding craft and/or po’-bis’ (the business aspect of poetry–publishing one’s work, organizing a reading, etc.).
The workshop is free, but you must register by emailing: conroyflower@yahoo.com

The workshop is limited to 11 registrants per day.

    I am a published poet and writer and have been hoping a workshop would come along to pique my creative spirit. My poetry book are GIRL HURT (won the 1996 American Book Awaed) and TURNING. I am presently working on a new cillection. My poetry has been published in many places including the American Poetry Review, Prairie Schooner, The Massachusetts Review and Poerty North. I would love to attend all sessions or what sessions might be available still. I just read about the workshop in the PARADE section of the newspaper. I hope to hear back from you. My phone number is 305-834-0040 and my email id ejlaino@aol.com
