From Project to Poetry Collection – Summer 2021

Is there a project brewing in you? Are you ready to push that vision toward a full-length poetry collection? Bring your poems to this workshop, which will provide generative suggestions for writing toward a compelling manuscript. Whether you have five poems or 20, this workshop will steer you toward a compelling, unified manuscript. We will explore ways to determine the shape of a collection and challenge ourselves to write new poems that fill gaps and follow new patterns. For intermediate and advanced levels.

Tina Parker is the author of three books of poetry, most recently Lock Her Up, published by Accents Publishing in 2021. She is the former President of the Kentucky State Poetry Society and a juried member of the Women of Appalachia Project.
