This workshop takes place at Bowery Poetry Club on the following Sundays from 12PM-2PM

This workshop helps participants unlock and better realize their full poetic potential. In four carefully-detailed stages, a unique and elegant set of tools, techniques, examples and poetic understandings are presented and practiced. Group and at-home exercises further facilitate quickly reaching a new level of poetic connection and achievement. No prior experience or preparation is needed for this workshop.
"Andrew's poetry workshop was a master-class in immediacy. It introduced us to a way of observing / writing that pushed us beyond preconceptions and habitual responses into the living essence of the moment". ~ Kathy Tiernan, Author
"I felt inspired by being asked not only to describe a subject strictly faithfully, but wait till it 'speaks' and tells us about itself. Singer's unique method of poetry teaching fits so well with both Ben Okri's vision of the academies of the future in his 'Plato's Dream', and with neuroscientist Ian McGilchrist's emphasis of the incomparable importance of the right hemisphere in his groundbreaking book, 'The Master and his Emissary'. I look forward to the next masterclass with Andrew"! ~ Narda Azaria Dalgleish, Experimental filmmaker, Poet
