Description: It’s almost summertime! Forget all that talk of bikini bodies, and let’s focus on slimming down those poems! Join me for a repeat of this two-week online workshop that will get you revising those neglected poems in no time! With this workshop, you’ll get daily revision prompts. I’ll also send tips on how and when to let go of poems that aren’t coming together, and decluttering your hard drive or writing desk. In addition, you’ll get a one-on-one critique of two poems. Join me in making your poems sharp and lean! To sign up, please use the online registration form

Back by popular demand! Many poets are intimidated by the prospect of writing formal poetry. The villanelle, with the constraint of repeated lines, can seem especially daunting. This workshop will explore different ways of creating villanelles, including using found lines, to push the boundaries of constrains and make the form a fun exploration of sound and rhythm. To register, sign up via Eventbrite:

I have been working as a teacher, tutor and writing coach since 2005. I am available for poetry workshops and one-on-one coaching sessions. In a group setting, I can create a welcoming, supportive atmosphere and help students learn a new approach to their work. I can help individual clients set goals for their work, brainstorm ideas, revise their pieces, search for potential publishing markets, and self-publish their work.
