Workshop

1/8

The Green Street Poetry Workshop is the heart and soul of our organization. At our workshops,  members meet to share, edit, and discuss our work in a friendly, constructive atmosphere.  Attendees are free to bring a poem to be workshopped or just sit in, enjoy a few drinks and take part in the conversation.

The goal of the workshop is simple - we hope that through collaboration, honest critiques, and persistent encouragement, we can help each other achieve whatever writing goals we've set for ourselves - big or small. Whether you are seeking intense criticism to fine-tune your upcoming chapbook - or just looking for a friendly environment to read and share some poetry, you will walk away from our workshop feeling cozy, encouraged, and hopeful about your future as a writer.
