Advanced Poetry Writing with Stephen Dunn
The Dunn/Addonizio sessions are part of the Advanced Poetry Workshop, which is comprised of three periods of craft discussion/writing prompts and three feedback sessions. If you choose to add on a workshop with Stephen, you will work with him during one of the three feedback sessions.
If you opt to work with one of our Special Guests during the workshop feedback sessions, you may bring a poem in progress (30 line maximum) or the day’s assignment to be critiqued. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to one of these intensive sessions with each Special Guest. There is a $100 surcharge for each of these add-ons which is limited to 10 participants.

“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
