Poetry Workshops

Writers in the Getaway Bookstore

Each Getaway poetry workshop will meet for 15 hours and will offer craft discussion, writing prompts, writing time, feedback, motivation and inspiration. By spending the entire weekend in one workshop, participants will venture deeper into their writing, making more progress than they thought possible.

Most of our poetry workshops are limited to just 10 participants per section.

Registration update – 12/1/15 – Workshops are filling quickly. As of 12 p.m. today, everything below has one or more seats available unless it is listed as filled. Register today to secure your place.

“In the ten years I have been attending the Getaway, I have grown in both confidence and competence as a poet. This wouldn’t have happened without encouragement to take risks coupled with support. Thank you.” ~ Deborah, Egg Harbor City, NJ
