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.
How It Works
When it's your turn, read your poem out loud to the group.
The group takes 3-5 minutes to mark up a copy of your poem. This includes any edits or suggestions from punctuation to line breaks.
The floor opens for discussion. This includes compliments, questions, and everything in between.
What You'll Need
If you are attending/participating in the workshop, please bring:
7-10 copies of the poem you want workshopped
A pen or pencil for editing
Cash (or Venmo) for food and drinks
