What Past Fellows Have Said

I was challenged, encouraged, and revitalized! It was all I could've hoped for and more!

I felt so lucky and happy to be a part of the group.

The writing prompts helped me break through a bit of writer's paralysis.

I was deeply impressed, had a great time, and am amazed by how much I learned and how valuable the workshop was -- especially for the price. Keep doing such great work!

Please keep doing this. And I hope past retreat members are welcome to return! I hit a real snag with my reading & writing life. I came into the workshop really nervous that I wouldn't be able to keep up or be able to produce anything. [It] helped me (re)navigate why I'm doing this and helped rekindle a love for reading poetry.​​

Thank you SO much for this workshop. It was truly a gift.

YES. I would definitely recommend this workshop to poets who are further in their career as poets. This workshop is definitely not for poets who "dabble" in the art. I truly appreciate the more advanced approach in the workshop. The quality of the poets' work was superb!
