Fearless Poetry Workshop with Julie Bruck

October 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm PDT


Now celebrating over 15 years at The Writing Salon, this workshop draws people who want to jumpstart their poetry practice and to keep the engine oiled. You’ll do plenty of writing and reading, and we’ll have lively discussions about both the craft and the process(es) of poetry.

Each weekly homework assignment provides fresh angles of approach designed to surprise, even startle, both the writers and their readers. “We all get stuck in familiar ruts,” says instructor Julie Bruck, “and this class offers ways of digging ourselves out, whether we use these strategies to start a new poem or to revise a particularly challenging one. With fresh poems on the table each week, an early question is often, how does this poem move? Our group task is to offer constructive help in locating and enhancing that movement. Poets are always learning how to read their own drafts (and those of others), much as we keep learning how to read the world.”

The remote class is suitable for a wide spectrum of people. “We’ve had students with an interest in poetry but no experience writing it, and others with MFA’s from Iowa, and it’s always been a good mix,” says Julie. “The aim of the class is to get everybody excited about new work, to take away strategies that can help with current and future writing—and to have a great time while we’re at it.”
