Online Poetry Workshop



We just finished a global poetry workshop with Google Hangouts and it was a success. There were only three poets but we had representatives from both hemispheres so I was enthused. All the poetry was strong and the reviews respectful. Thanks, Flicker of Thoughts & The Prolific Pulse! I’ll definitely host another workshop soon.

But not too soon because National Poetry Month starts tomorrow and I’ll be writing and posting a poem-a-day for the next thirty days. I encourage all my fellow poets to take up this challenge. I can guarantee your poetry will improve by May.

And then you’ll have lots of poems to submit to my next workshop.

    I love that photo. I think “The Empty Room” will be the title of a poem I have to write this month.

    • I wasn’t sure what sort of stock image to use for an online global poetry workshop but that one kinda reminded me of the library study room our workshop hasn’t occupied yet this year and won’t again until who knows when.

    Hi. a friend of mine is interested in joining the LVPW group and I can’t remember how she does that or if I even got the acronym right. I am a member in the rears. How does she sign up for this group. I’ve been reading and am very impressed with all of the talent.
