I’m teaching a poetry workshop this spring in Syracuse

I’m thrilled to announce that I will be teaching a poetry writing workshop called “Improving the Blank Page” this spring at The Downtown Writer’s Center in sunny Syracuse, NY.

Improving the Blank Page with Christopher Citro. Weds., 6:30-8:00. 8 weeks, starting April 8, 2015. Nicanor Parra once said, “In poetry, everything is permitted. With only this condition, of course: you have to improve on the blank page.” In this workshop, we’ll read and discuss contemporary poetry from a writer’s perspective and create fresh poems of our own. We’ll share new work based on prompts and exercises, and improve on a few blank pages along the way.

Registration is open to the public. To learn more about The Downtown Writer’s Center, download the spring class schedule, and register for this workshop, visit the Center’s website HERE. Feel free to share with anyone in the area who might be interested!
