Poetry Workshop

I am going to teach a 5-week long poetry workshop at The Vintage Theater in downtown Scranton starting Wednesday, Jan. 19 and running through the next few Wednesdays. The sessions will feature lessons on various techniques of poetry, including metaphor, form, line break, rhythm, persona, narrative, revision, and public readings.  Each student’s work will be heavily critiqued by fellow students and myself. Furthermore, I will always take student work home with me and heavily comment on it. The last session will feature a reading party to showcase the work the students completed during the five weeks.

The cost of the workshop is $75, and some of that money will go to The Vintage Theater. At this point, I am near my limit for students, but I can still add a few more. If interested, contact me at bfanelli84@gmail.com.
