Poem-a-Day: How to Write a Connected Series

A Chapbook in a Month – POEM-A-DAY: HOW TO WRITE A CONNECTED SERIES with Penelope Scambly Schott

In this workshop we will discuss how to create an extended body of work that goes together, whether by topic or tone or sequence.  Poet Penelope Scambly Schott (author of NOVEMBER QUILT and other books) will briefly describe her process and results. Then we as a group will brainstorm topics and approaches. We will each experiment with an organizing idea and make notes toward a first poem in our own possible new series.

If participants are interested, we can plan to meet again in about a month to see what we’ve done.

Group limit: 15. Cost: $28. Prerequisites: none.
