JOIN WISTERIA AND KURT EVERY WEDNESDAY EVENING FOR OUR POETRY WORKSHOP AT THE COFFEE HOUSE WITHOUT LIMITS!!

“The philosophy behind workshop is that writers will learn to be better writers by working with other writers who are engaged in similar efforts and who share similar goals. Together, this community of writers reads, critiques, praises, and questions each other’s work.”

~ Writers will be encouraged to bring a poem to share. ~
(The poem may be one of your own or one of your favorite author’s poetry.)

~ Author will first read poem aloud, and then another writer will re-read the poem to the group. ~
(Poetry generally will be re-read by another writer to gain a full sense of the spoken word.)

~ Group will take turns first praising anything enjoyed, then critiquing and questioning the poem. ~
(Information will be used to strengthen work, NOT to rationalize flaws.)

~ Time will be allowed at the end to write new poetry. ~
(An important time for reflection while creative juices are flowing and while in an environment that provides the freedom to write.)
