“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go and not be questioned.”

*Self guided courses do not list a start date because they are on your schedule! Once you select the Writer’s Group option, I’ll put you in touch with your group to determine a start date which works best for everyone. Sign up for the independent option and set your own start date. Writer’s Group courses run 9 weeks and Independent Poets have 8 weeks from enrolling to complete the course.

*July 10 – September 10
In this class, you’ll use your cell phone’s camera to gather poem fodder, and learn techniques to inspire you to play with images and techniques from your photo library to draft new work long after our time together is through. We’ll explore a single “focus” method (pun intended! hehe) each week for both prompts each week. In this course, two step prompts are paired with anchor poems and examples from other artists. Choosing from material gathered in the photo prompt and via the writing prompt, by the end of our time together, you’ll have a handful of fresh drafts inspired by images of your summer explorations.

This course is asynchronous. Our weeks in this class run from WEDNESDAY to TUESDAY with lessons posting on WEDNESDAY mornings.
Please use the address where you’d prefer to receive any event related content such as self-enrollment links, Zoom registration invitations, or pdfs with anchor texts and/or prompts.
Please note below if you’d like to join a class which will give peer feedback in a writer’s group format (no instructor feedback for this course), or prefer to take it independently.

NOTE: No worries if you’d like feedback but don’t have a group you write with – I can matchmake you with a group. If you have a group already formed and would like to take it together, please note that in the “notes” field at the bottom of this form.
