Fellowship Offered for Poets On the Coast Winter Retreat, Feb 6th 2016
I am a great believer in a community of people coming together to write for an afternoon. For example, left to my own devices, I may work on one poem for a couple of hours and call it good. However, if I'm writing with a group, my energy seems to build on itself and I am happy to create new work and play with words much longer.
On Saturday, February 6th, Kelli Russell Agodon and I are teaching a one day class in Seattle in the South Lake Union neighborhood (on several bus lines and with on street parking). In the morning there will be a three hour "Generating New Work" workshop, then a break for lunch, and then "The Art of Revision."
We will begin at 10 AM and finishing the second class at 4:00 PM. Class size is intimate and limited to 18 students for each workshop. If you are interested in learning more, please go to Winter Retreats, Poets on the Coast. We still have a few openings for the morning and/or afternoon sessions.
For the first time we are also offering a Rich-Russell Fellowship to a poet who would like to join us but whose finances are limited. To apply for the Rich-Russell Fellowship, please send us three poem (no longer than three pages of poetry in total) and a one page statement on why a one day Winter Retreat in Seattle is what you need for your writing right now. Email us with poems and statement in an email message at PoetsOntheCoast@gmail.com by Friday, January 29th.
We hope to see you February 6th for a day devoted to your writing! Questions? Feel free to contact us at PoetsOntheCoast@gmail.com
