Poetry Mentorship with Brian Tierney
This remote poetry “class” offers a unique opportunity for personal and intimate poetry instruction. Students will work with Brian Tierney one-on-one, via written correspondence over nine weeks, during which students will compile and send one “packet” every three weeks.
Each “packet” will consist of: 1) 3-5 poems for in-depth written feedback from Brian; 2) a small critical engagement with select reading assignments in poetry (which Brian will provide) and which will foster close-reading skills and inform creative practice; and 3) a small “letter” to be addressed to Brian, in which students can discuss their writing and creative life, and pose any relevant questions. Brian will review and respond to these packets in writing, for a total of three packet responses over nine weeks.
This mentorship opportunity is ideal for poets who are craving critical feedback that workshops can provide, but looking for a more comprehensive and focused engagement, where the specific concerns of one’s writing practice and poems can be addressed individually.
Intermediate writers and above recommended.
