Poetry & Pop: A Creative Writing Workshop
Get more writing done and take Rosebud Ben-Oni’s workshop!
How can popular culture shape your poetry and create a unique voice? This 7-week workshop will lead writers through a series of questions, prompts and exercises utilizing existing popular culture to help craft poems. Students will offer feedback on each other’s work. We will also analyze existing poems that utilize popular culture, in order to better fuel creativity and spark discussion on how poetry informs and responds to social and political ideologies.

The Poetry Workshop
Taught by Daphne Gottlieb
November 3 – December 15
Daphne Gottlieb, winner of the Firecracker and Audre Lorde awards, comes to the Literary Kitchen to teach an intimate 6-week online poetry workshop this fall.
Get well-versed. The words you were looking for all year are waiting here for you. Spend the end of 2013 digging deep and writing them, using prompts, formal constraints, and all sorts of exercises to lure your brain out of hibernation and onto the page. This class aims to be the permission you have been waiting for, the kick in the ass you need, the dare that you take and the truth that you tell. All levels of experience are welcome – this is as much playroom as workshop. We will cast a wide, provocative net that will foster poetic explorations and inquiries that far outlast the class. And we will revise and rework, helping each other hone and whittle and shine, like the sweet razors we are.
Class size is strictly limited, so sign up early.
Class costs $195. A $60 deposit saves your spot.
