Explore poetry in this small group workshop dedicated to experimentation in a wide range of forms, from page to performance. Whether you’re into sonnets or slam, our teaching-poet will help you find your voice. You’ll discuss work by contemporary poets, write lots of new work, and participate in constructive critique aimed to help you prepare a small collection of poems worthy of publication.


Things to Know When Registering:

  1. Your camp purchase includes an anthology featuring writing from your camper! This will be mailed to you before the winter holidays.
  2. We want to spell your kid’s name right in the anthology! Please double-check spelling.
  3. *NEW THIS YEAR* Your registration confirmation will include a link to a form that will ask for more required information about your camper like allergies and grade level. If you could fill this out as soon as possible, we won’t have to bug you as much.
