Write and Submit: Self-Portrait Poems
In this workshop, participants learn how to create poems using writing prompts focused on expression of the self, then revise and prepare the poems for submitting to literary magazines. This workshop is presented in three virtual sessions, revision feedback via the WetInk platform, and a participant poetry reading during the final session.
