Join award-winning Wisconsin poet Paul Wiegel on Zoom for Short Poems Workshop!
This two-part workshop will focus on crafting tightly worded poems. The workshop will begin by looking at examples of short poems and discussing how they work well, and then using those examples to guide the process in crafting your own poems. Participants will have opportunities to share ideas with others and provide feedback, or simply work at their own pace.
