Poetry Springs Writing Workshop

“I want to write while crossing the fields that are fresh with daisies and everlasting and the ordinary grass.” –Mary Oliver

The days grow long, the birds sing, flowers burst open, and the poets write it all down. In this four-session workshop, we’ll read poems by Mary Oliver, Robert Bly, Gary Snyder and other poets who “write while crossing the field,” filling their poems with natural imagery. Using natural imagery as our framework, we’ll pick up our pens and write our own poems, returning the next week to workshop them as a group. Facilitated by Napa County Poet Laureate Jeremy Benson, this workshop is for all levels of poets.


Wednesdays April 4, 11, 18, 25 6:00-8:00PM $50
