Office Hours Poetry Workshop
Provides post-MFA poets continued support for manuscript-development and everyday writing. The workshop culminates in a public reading each fall and spring to showcase sizzling new work.
We welcome all poets, especially people of color, LGBTQ+, and those who are femme-identified. Our name derives from our side hustle. Many of us are freelance, adjunct instructors, who continue to thrive in the margins of academia.
Each member workshops a poem every session, thus, we curtail membership at or below 7 people to allow for busy schedules. The workshop meets every two weeks following the fall and spring academic calendar. We charge zero fees to join. Interested writers should submit 6 pages of work to be reviewed by the workshop facilitator firstname.lastname@example.org or drop us a line to learn more!
