Frequently Asked Questions How will this workshop be offered? This is a live, online workshop delivered through the video conferencing platform Zoom.
What if I've never written poetry? This workshop has been created for all experience levels. No experience is necessary.
What do I need to have on hand on the day of the workshop? I suggest that you have your favourite notebook and pen on hand as there will be several timed writing prompts. Some writers prefer to use their computer or tablet. That's fine too.
What if I want to participate in the prompts but don't like sharing my work with the group? No one is ever forced to share their work with the group. I may ask for volunteers, but you will not be put on the spot or expected to share what you've written.
Will we get feedback on our poetry? This workshop focuses on generating writing through prompts and timed-writing exercises. If you are interested in feedback, visit my website to find out about my manuscript evaluation services or sign up for my newsletter to find out about the feedback-based courses that I offer.
How much does the Narrative Poetry Workshop cost? $50 (CAD)
Technology Requirements To use the Zoom platform, you can call in or use your computer or phone's video and audio.
