POET CAMP Registration


Muse as Mermaid:

$225 Independent, $275 Writers Group

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

– Maya Angelou

*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.

We’ll consider the ocean of possibilities available to us in writing poems inspired by many aspects of marine life, real and imagined. We’ll write poems “from the beach,” and dive into the waves for more inspiration, found in shipwrecks, mermaids, and real wonders underwater. We’ll find solace and healing watching the waves. Most of our class time will be spent on experiments and prompts geared towards generating new work. By the end of class you’ll have several fresh drafts, and will have found a way to dip your toes along the tideline even if summer is spent on dry land.
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.
