The Fourteen Choices of a Poem

You are invited to a free talk and Q&A session with award winning poet and editor Darren C. Demaree.

There are so many possibilities to a poem. Music, energy, title choices, language and vernacular, pop culture, politics, landscape and so on. In this workshop, we'll be exploring how and when to use the parts of poetry to maintain a generative writing practice.

Darren is the editor-in-chief of the Best of the Net Anthology, the editor of Ovenbird poetry, and a widely published and award winning poet.

By signing up, we will also let you know about future lectures, workshops, and opportunities from The Writer's Workshop at Authors Publish.
