Getting Unstuck Poetry Workshop (in person)

November 19, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm EST



Writer’s block: Is there such a thing? William Stafford’s solution: Ignore “high standards” and get into action. Expecting every draft to say it all is a lot of pressure. Instead, exercising our writing muscles every day can help prepare us for when the big poem needs to be born.

In this poetry workshop we’ll explore ways to move through fear and doldrums. Criticism—especially from the worst critic of all, one’s self—will be banished in a kind but firm manner. We’ll spend a little time discussing ways to get unstuck, produce a piece of writing, and go home with some strategies for getting unstuck again.

Register at Writers & Books . You will receive a Zoom link from them before the workshop.

This two-hour workshop is in-person at Writers & Books, Rochester, NY.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
