One-On-One Poetry Workshop

45


45 per hour - Virtual OK

I will help you with the craft of writing poetry. In a one hour telephone or facetime session, you can share poetry you have written, and I will give you guidance at whatever level you would like. If you are a beginner and want encouragement and ideas for exploring writing poetry, for growing your craft, we can talk about that. I can tell you what I like about your poem, and what I would like to hear more about (encouraging you to write more in that direction). If you are advanced, I can give you a close critique of poetry you have written. If you want a close reading and critique, I will need the text of the poem or poems sent in our conversation ahead of time, so I can print a copy to work on. If you would like a poetry writing exercise or prompt, I am happy to oblige. The hour is yours for working and playing with poetry. Few things are as much fun as working on writing craft!

Training & Qualifications


I have been writing poetry for 40plus years, and participating in an incredible weekly writing critique group where we practice the craft of giving feedback to help each other make our writing as wonderful, strong, and true to each writer's vision as possible.I have a masters in English with an emphasis in creative writing, and I've taught college writing. My poems have been published in literary journals and my chapbook WOLFDREAM won the Anabiosis Press chapbook contest and gained me a Pushcart Poet nomination. I recently completed a 285 page memoir written in free verse, and am now querying agents. I'm returning to work on a book of poetry titled THE PHILOSOPHER AND HIS DOG. I love doing the writing craft and talking about creative process.

Availability & Preferences


Varies.... I'm sure we can compare our schedules and work out a time.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Carole Stedronsky

I am an artist and writer. I am 63 years old, although I have lots of playful inner children. My friends say I have taught them how to play.... I've taught improvisational creative process to childre...n and adults, informally, and in classes, with drawing, painting, quilting, and writing. I have a masters in English with an emphasis in creative writing, and I've been in a writing critique group that has been meeting weekly for 25 years. We meet at noon, have lunch together and chat for a half hour, then read, edit and and critique each others' current work. I have published poetry in literary magazines, my chapbook Wolfdream won the Anibiosis Press chapbook contest and I've been nominated as a Pushcart Poet. I'm at a place in my life where I'm working on book projects.... I'm finishing a memoir and book proposal this month (ten years work), and then I will be working on finishing the illustrations for my picture book titled You Are The Artist, to be published by Reflection Press. I play the bodhran (Irish frame drum). After a bad fall from a horse, I have nerve damage and chronic pain and have a purple electric wheelchair (zoom) and a wonderful Golden Retriever service dog named Hazel. I've figured out how to do my creative work (writing, drawing, painting watercolors, creative consulting) from my recliner where I spend most of my time at home (for pain management). Through necessity, I've become quite knowledgeable about pain management through a multi-faceted approach, and that will be another book project. This year I got an outdoor recliner, which is wonderful, because I can sit outdoors and write or read or draw and occasionally throw tennis balls for Hazel. I'm sitting in my outdoor recliner as I write this, under the wisteria, dog, cat, and Japanese maple trees beside me, enjoying the cool summer morning. I'm married to a retired firefighter captain. Our 29-year-old son (who teaches high school physics) and his wife (who is an archeologist) and two Italian greyhounds live three blocks away, and we go on dog walks together in the afternoon or evening. show more
