The Poetry Project’s workshops have a reputation for being both rigorous, accessible, and affordable. Teachers, experienced writers, and new writers work together with a shared dedication to creating exciting poetry and exploring a wide range of literary genres, styles, and traditions.

We will begin registering students in August for Fall workshops and January for Spring workshops. Due to a cap of 15 seats per workshop for all workshops hosted during the 2017-18 season unless otherwise noted, reservations are required and payment must be received in advance.

Tuition for one 10-session workshop is $275 and for one 5-session workshop is $150 for the 2017-18 season. Tuition for one Master Class is $95, or $75 for students and seniors. If you are a student or senior, email with a scan of your Student ID for a discount code.

Workshop Scholarship:
The Project is committed to making sure Workshops are available to all who wish to take them. In order to make The Poetry Project's Workshops accessible to a broader community of interested writers, we are happy to announce that we are now offering a limited number of full scholarships for workshops and master classes. Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-serve basis to qualified individuals. We are only able to offer one scholarship per person per year. Please contact Laura at lh@poetryproject with any questions.

To apply, please submit a Confidential Financial Information form.

Cancellation Policy:
For a refund or credit, you need to send an email to at least two business days before your class starts. You can either receive credit for another Poetry Project Workshop of equal length/cost (valid for one year) OR you can opt for a refund minus a $25 administrative fee. We can’t issue a refund or credit after classes have started. Often, there is a waiting list for Workshops so we need to make sure that our classes are full, run smoothly and are dynamic learning environments.
