Thursdays from 5:30-7:30pm
March 5th – April 23rd
8 classes + a reading

I hope for this workshop to be generative and reflective and offer many new perspectives to each in relation to your own work and the work of others. Good writers are inventors, matches, explorers, hats, detectives, flashlights, and very importantly readers. Poetry will get us curious. Writing, reading and discussing poems will be our means of propulsion. Engagement with your own work and outstanding contemporary work will help us to explore how an interest in poetry can be pursued in the larger context of one’s life. 

Flying Object is a unique and magical space that powerfully helps to inform our ideas, our writing, our reading. It is a laboratory. Our laboratory! And library! And listening and looking space place.

If you are interested in reserving a place, please send an email explaining why you would like to take the class, along with a little information about yourself and a writing sample of 4-10 pages of poems to ecpettit@gmail.com.

Emily Pettit is the author of GOAT IN THE SNOW (Birds LLC). She is an editor for notnostrums and Factory Hollow Press, as well as the publisher of jubilat. Emily received her MFA in poetry from the University of Iowa.
