Online with Zoom.  This is a traditional workshop format: one poem per person each week critiqued by me with feedback from group members. These are poets working at an advanced level, many with publications (books and/or journals), and with experience in the field of poetry.

The cost for a month's session is $300.   Limited to 8 participants.

There is currently a waiting list.  Please email me if you're interested in being on the list:
