Workshops

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 lh@poetryproject.org 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. Workshop scholarship funds have been distributed for the Fall 2017 Season. Please contact Laura at lh@poetryproject.org with any questions,

Cancellation Policy:
For a refund or credit, you need to send an email to info@poetryproject.org 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.
