Workshops are great. And sometimes you want something a bit more personal. The Ruth Stone House and Sommer Browning are offering month-long, online mentorships to focus specifically on your poems, and other questions you may have about the writing life. Let’s talk about questions like these: What am I best at in my writing? What are my poems doing? How do I fit writing into my life? Why the hell did I choose to be a writer? Sommer will meet with you online for 30 minutes two times in September. She will also provide written feedback, line edits, and comments on a packet of 10-15 pages of your poetry.
This workshop includes two 30 minute sessions. Scheduling is arranged after registration, and all available dates are in September.
Please note, you need to be able to use Zoom for meetings and Microsoft Word to participate.
