Tonight We Write Down the Moon: A Poetry Workshop – Online
Sponsored by Writers in Progress
8 Tuesdays, beginning September 21, 2021
6-9 pm EST

Register at the Writers in Progress website.
Our lives might be busy, our minds distracted. But once a week, for eight Tuesdays, we will cultivate our power of observation, writing poems that love on our five senses, remembering the moon. Each week, we’ll generate new writing together, responding to exercises and creative prompts the workshop leader brings. We’ll share our efforts with each other and receive supportive responses/feedback.  We’ll also look each week at poems by our contemporaries that bring us to our senses – literally! – exploring them for craft choices and emotional resonance.  Participants will have the opportunity to send a poem to the workshop leader for full critique – or just for sharing.  All levels of experience with poetry are invited!
