Sharon Chmielarz Poetry Revision Workshop
This is an intense workshop on revising your writing. Writing is a process; taking time to reflect on what you have written is a critical step in creating a finished piece.
The workshop will be full steam ahead in the morning. Lunch break. And then work for another couple of hours.
Participants may have the opportunity to read a poem during the evening reading.
Bring a poem or two you are working on or have put away to finish later. You will need paper or notebook and pen or pencil.
