“And here I am, the / center of all beauty! / writing these poems! / Imagine!” –Frank O’Hara

Join Peter Burzynski and other writers in this four-part workshop series that explores writing about one’s self. We will engage in lyric poetry, memoir, fictionalized biography, love poetry, and other forms. Source materials will include works by Frank O’Hara, Czesław Miłosz, Sylvia Plath, Maggie Nelson, and others. Participants can expect to do a fair amount of writing with both in-class exercises and take-home assignments. We will also be sharing and workshopping each others’ work with the hope it will produce meaningful revisions. Writers of all levels welcome. Come and write what (or rather who) you know!

2:00 - 3:30 PM

Instructor: Peter Burzynski

Purchase full workshop ticket or stop in day of for Drop-ins $30 ($27 Members)
