Write With Me

Join me for craft seminars and workshops at Lighthouse Writers Workshop, coaching sessions, and drop-in virtual writing classes.


Poetry at Lighthouse Writers Workshop

At Lighthouse, I teach poetry classes and manuscript development seminars that emphasize a playful approach to form and technique, integrating the practice of poetry with close reading and workshop skills. Recent classes include The Art of Accumulation, Poetry Workshop, Poetry 101, Poetry and Paradox, Poems from Visual Art, and Mapping Territory: Organizing Your Poetry Manuscript.

Drop-in Poetry: Guided Writing Practice (via Zoom)

Poetry writing is an ideal practice for our times. Writing poems strengthens our capacity for human connection, focuses our attention, and helps us cultivate joy. Every poem is an act of resilience. In these virtual weekly drop-in sessions, I guide participants through poetry exercises that help you access playful flow states. We explore exceptional poems from a variety of poets and gain confidence in poetic techniques. Open to all levels.

Why Write Poetry

“Poetry is connective, empathy building, and enlivening. More than any other use of language, poem writing frees us to travel well beyond the borders of our everyday selves.”
