Come write about specific events and places in your life, real or imagined. Bill has created new prompt ideas with poetry models which can work for new poems or new creative nonfiction prose pieces.
Bill's gift to workshop members is to have participants write, share beginnings, and leave with first drafts that are life-important.
Who's it For:
Anyone interested in trying his or her hand at poetry, whether novice or experienced.
When does this class meet?
