TPS 8-Week Core Class

In collaboration with The Poetry Salon (TPS), I am thrilled to offer quarterly 8-week core poetry classes in multiple locations throughout Los Angeles.

This summer, July-September 2019, I will be co-teaching with Tresha Faye Haefner. Starting in the fall, I will be leading my own 8-week classes through TPS. I am very happy to offer these opportunities, and hope you will consider joining us!

Always feel free to reach out to me via email with any questions!

Class Description: The Poetry Salon is a fun, nurturing environment where advanced writers come to share their work and develop their craft. Our quarterly 8-week workshop sessions deepen your writing practice by focusing on the craft and techniques of poetry, how to respond to others’ work, and how to hone your rough drafts into original, powerful written pieces.  The Poetry Salon uses wholly original curriculum that comprise up to two years of instruction. Whether you are writing for publication or for personal fulfillment, you will develop confidence and wonder as you master the mysterious art form. 

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • Deeper understanding of the revision process
  • A solid grasp of poetic technique
  • Access to a powerful community of seasoned artists
  • Personalized feedback on developing and completing your work

Limit 6 poets per class.
(This allows for closer readings and more individualized attention.
Early sign up is recommended to reserve your spot.)
