Feedback, Not Friction: A Poetry Critique Group for Women of Color

$25.00

In celebration of National Poetry Month, we’re holding two  sessions  of  “Feedback, Not Friction: A Poetry Critique Group for Women of Color” this April. This workshop is specifically for Women of Color to include women-identifying and gender-nonconforming individuals. Participants will meet virtually to discuss and give feedback on original, previously shared poetry at a round-table discussion facilitated by poet and publisher Christina Butcher. Using workshop principles presented by Felicia Rose Chavez in The Anti-Racist Writing Workshop, we’ll engage in collective support; study and discuss each writer’s style, voice, and writing habits; discuss craft elements to give and receive targeted, craft-based feedback; and assess the challenges and successes of submitted drafts. Before signing up, please see the workshop notes below, then please select a  workshop date from the dropdown menu.

Description

In celebration of National Poetry Month, we’re holding two  sessions  of  “Feedback, Not Friction: A Poetry Critique Group for Women of Color” this April. As always, we include women-identifying and gender-nonconforming individuals when referring to “women.” Workshop participants will meet virtually to discuss and give feedback on original, previously shared poetry at a round-table discussion facilitated by poet and publisher Christina Butcher.

Using workshop principles presented by Felicia Rose Chavez in The Anti-Racist Writing Workshop, we’ll engage in collective support; study and discuss each writer’s style, voice, and writing habits; discuss craft elements to give and receive targeted, craft-based feedback; and assess the challenges and successes of submitted drafts.


A Few Notes

• Writers may submit up to ten pages of poetry (hybrid and experimental poetry included) to be workshopped by the group.

• Writers must submit their poems to a shared, group folder on Google Drive at least two weeks before the workshop date to allow all participants ample time to read and familiarize themselves with the work.

• Workshop capacity is limited to six participants per session.
