“The poetry workshop was an amazing experience for me. It showed me I can experiment with different styles and explore different directions. We wrote our poems in only a few minutes, and it came so easily! What was it about the workshop that’s most usable in my day-to-day writing life? I discovered that, while technique is important, the lack of total technical mastery doesn’t have to stop you from writing. And reading poetry prolifically will eventually help you to recognize the techniques you can use, the skills you need.”
