Daily reading and specific critique of original poems by participants aimed at revision and the next draft of the poem. What is working, what is not? The process is focused toward a publishable draft of the poem.
I'm the recipient of a Pushcart Prize and my work has been widely anthologized. Garrison Keillor read four of my poems on N.P.R's The Writer's Almanach. I edited four anthologies: Night Out: Poems about Hotels, Motels, Restaurants and Bars, Outsiders: Poems about Rebels, Exiles and Renegades, Urban Nature: Poems about Wildlife in the Cities, and Never Before: Poems About First Experiences.
I have led poetry workshops at many Writers' Conferences, such as The Frost Place, the Aspen Writers' Conference, The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA, and the Palm Beach Poetry Festival in Florid[More]
