Sharpened Visions: A Poetry Workshop
This is a workshop designed to share with others sharpened artistic visions that have been successfully published or are in the process of being written. Sharpened artistic visions are not easily discovered or reproduced, let alone brought to fruition. This course will enable participants to identify with a vision, and to understand the motivation for bringing their vision to the world. The course will also help those who have attempted to bring their visions to the world to understand the dynamics of the marketplace. It will emphasize the craft of finding one’s own vision, and the importance of being an active and creative participant in the marketplace of ideas.

This is a short-form residency, open to anyone with a passion for poetry and/or songwriting. We hope you will join in!
