My Micro-Chapbook workshop is coming to a close next week. It has been so wonderful to watch all the poets write such powerful work and support each other through that work. Just when you think you can't write more than 1 or 2 poems on a subject or in a certain form, you write 8 or 10! You write your own epic. Students are writing about their families, their obsessions, paintings, their work, peace, South Africa, the election, and water with phrases that ignite. They are funny, solemn, and deep.
Series can ignite a spark to full roar. I'm having so much fun I may do another class in February with all different exercises but the same idea. Keep the flame lit. Keep writing.
Come join us.
