Advanced Poetry Writing with Kim Addonizio
Poetry workshop in New Jersey
January 16-19, 2015
Led by Special Guest Kim Addonizio
*Limited to just 10 participants per session.*
The poetry writing workshops are at the heart of the Winter Getaway. Experienced poets taking Advanced Poetry Writing are invited to work with Kim Addonizio during one of their three feedback sessions.
In Kim’s workshop, you will receive constructive feedback on a poem in progress (30 line maximum) or a new poem written to the day’s assignment. She will help you identify your poem’s virtues and offer suggestions to strengthen its weaknesses. Since you already know the basics, she will encourage you to push your boundaries by taking imaginative and linguistic risks so you can make breakthroughs in your poetry.
- Fee: $100 to add-on one poetry feedback session with Kim Addonizio
- Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to one of these intensive sessions with each Special Guest (Stephen Dunn and Kim Addonizio)
- Note: Kim’s sessions are not one-on-one tutorials, but group workshops with 10 participants
During your two additional feedback sessions, you will work with other members of our talented faculty. Each has a unique and encouraging style, which will nurture your poetry in different ways.

“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.”
