Jeffrey Morgan offers poetry class in Bellingham
January 30, 2014
Jeffrey Morgan invites your participation in an upcoming class, Writing Poems: A Momentary Stay Against Confusion, to be offered at his Bellingham home on six Tuesday evenings, February 18 – March 25, 2014.
Participants will write and read original poems, as well as provide and receive constructive feedback in a relaxed and supportive environment. Participants will also read short essays on the craft of poetry writing and discuss the work of numerous contemporary poets, including Bob Hicok, Tracy K. Smith, Matt Rasmussen and many others. The goal of this course is to bring a fun, low-pressure MFA-style poetry workshop to the local community. For those interested, poetry publication and packet/manuscript submission strategies will be discussed.
Jeffrey Morgan is the author of Crying Shame (BlazeVox, 2011). Newer poems appear, or will soon, in Barrow Street, Bellevue Literary Review, Cutbank, Painted Bride Quarterly, Pleiades, Rattle, Third Coast and West Branch, among others. He’s taught literature and creative writing for more than 15 years at colleges and universities, including Penn State University and The City University of New York. He also served as a judge for the 2012 Sue C. Boynton Poetry Contest.
Class size is limited to 12 students.
Workshop fee: $75
Materials: $15 (photocopies)
