Online Workshop: In the Poetry Garden

The West Tisbury Library will host In the Poetry Garden, a weekly online poetry gathering led by KT Herr. We'll come together using Zoom for a more-or-less traditionally-structured workshop discussion of each poet's work, finishing up with a reading by each poet of a finished, favorite poem of their own. This is workshop-style class, geared toward practiced poets with a degree of writing experience.

Meets virtually through Zoom (5/8, 5/22, 5/29, 6/5). Join one, some or all sessions. Each session will be limited to six participants.

Contact KT to register by emailing, and please submit a single poem via email at least two days in advance of the workshop (sign up and submit a poem by Wednesday afternoon). KT will email the poems around to each participant, and everyone will have two days to make notes on the poems, keeping in mind the following analogy:

Poems are green, living things. What is the seed from which this poem grew? Where are the moments of blooming, fruiting? What is the structure of the stems supporting these blooms? How might the poet prune and train the foliage toward a more fruitful, more pleasing result? Good writing communities function like a healthy ecosystem; on the basis of exchange. Participants will be expected to give thoughtful feedback as well as receive it.
