Keep the wellspring of inspiration flowing this fall. Each week will focus on poems about a new topic: we’ll write of memory, of presence, of grief, of protest, and of art, among other things. Our teachers will be great poems, our content will be our own. Each class will include discussion of inspiring poems, guided free-writes, and sharing. Between classes you will have reading and journal assignments. You will come away with an extensive portfolio of poems and ideas for poems.

LIVE VIDEO CONFERENCE: This workshop will be held via our online video conferencing platform, Zoom. The dates and times will remain the same. You can view brief tutorials on using the platform here. Shortly before the start date participants will recieve an email with login info. Please check your spam if you don’t see it.

Teaching Style: Ann brings the skill of close observation that enlivens her poetry to her work as a teacher, holding up a helpful mirror to each student’s unique gifts. In the words of a long-time student, “Ann leads her writers with the lightest touch. They do the work, but it doesn’t feel like work. It feels like love.”
