Course Detail: O_WWPOE - Writers' Workshop: The Shiny Day Poets

This ongoing poetry-writing workshop is limited to 12 members. Participants may be asked to prepare a short poetic presentation, referred to as a "Golden Nugget," and to design a prompt for a poem for the next session. Everyone brings 12 hard copies of their drafts for the others, which are taken home, read, and returned with detailed suggestions given for the poet's use. We participate in outside readings, go to lectures, and sometimes enter contests. In May, we'll join the OLLI Writers Showcase. This workshop meets the first Wednesday of the month from October 2017 through May.
