Playing with Poetic Forms: A Six-Week Poetry Workshop
$395.00 – $790.00
The fees from ABC’s adult writing workshops subsidize our free writing programs for kids, whose work is collected in a yearly anthology, and pay our adult workshop instructors. A limited number of seats in each class are reserved for scholarships, which cover 100% of tuition-fees and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. All are welcome, and we especially encourage BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ writers to apply.
This class will act as sort of design lab for trying new things. Poetic forms provide a structure for ideas, feelings, perspectives to grow into—they are perfect for getting out of a rut and finding a way into newfound expressiveness. From sestinas to erasure to haiku, we will read poems, workshop, and marvel at each other’s efforts. Each week, there will be assigned readings and a generative prompt. Workshops will not be critique based but appreciation based, as this is the best way to keep writing poems.
This Austin Bat Cave adult writing workshop is open to writers of all levels and is limited to 15 students.
