I’m excited to announce that I’ll be teaching an 8-week poetry writing workshop called “In the Landscape of Contemporary Poetry” starting February 1 at The Downtown Writer’s Center in sunny Syracuse, NY. If you’re in the area come on down!
In the Landscape of Contemporary Poetry with Christopher Citro. Wednesdays, 6:00-8:00. 8 weeks, starting Feb. 1. “A galaxy of wildflowers/ shimmers. Shimmers/and hollers,/’C’mon!’” writes Ross Gay in his 2015 book Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude. In this workshop we’ll discuss poetry from recent books and journals, then use prompts from our readings to inspire us in our own writing.
Registration is inexpensive and open to the public. To learn more about The Downtown Writer’s Center, download the winter class schedule, and register for this workshop, visit the Center’s website HERE. Feel free to share with anyone who might be interested!
