Poetry Workshops with Chris Gonzalez

WHAT: Poetry Workshops with Chris Gonzalez
WHEN: Sunday Afternoons February 4 - 25TH, 1-3PM
WHERE: Northampton Center for The Arts, 33 Hawley Street. Northampton, MA


Writers at all levels of experience and comfort with poetry are welcome.

In this workshop we'll workshop we’ll cover key poetic terms and devices by studying poems by a handful of modern and contemporary poets. Then we’ll get a chance to try our own hand at writing new poem drafts from a select number of prompts. Throughout the workshop you will have the opportunity to develop your poem drafts and get feedback on your work, moving towards a more polished poem.Through peer critique, you will respond closely to the work of fellow writers in a supportive workshop. Participants can expect to create new pieces on their own and also make new work in collaboration with fellow poets.

These workshops are held in memory of Eli Daniel Nemetz Todd, a writer born and raised in Northampton who died in October 2016 at the age of 23. They are made possible by donations to the Northampton Center for the Arts in Eli’s honor.
