Poetry and the Creative Process

What makes a poem? Sarah Stern will lead a three-part poetry workshop and provide writing exercises that will inspire and motivate. In the first class, participants will read and discuss selected contemporary poems with a broad range of topics and techniques. In the following two classes, participants will bring their own written poems to share and discuss. Beginning, emerging and seasoned poets are encouraged to attend. This workshop is meant for those looking for a supportive community of writers.

Sarah Stern is the author of a full-length poetry collection, "But Today Is Different" (Wipf and Stock Publishers, 2014) and a chapbook, "Another Word For Love" (Finishing Line Press, 2011).  Books are also available on Amazon and other sites.

She is a five-time winner of the Bronx Council on the Arts’ BRIO Award for Poetry. She was short-listed for Ireland’s Fish Poetry Prize and received Honorable Mentions from the Anna Davidson Rosenberg Awards and Lilith Magazine’s Poetry Prize.

Her poems have appeared in magazines, anthologies, and online, most recently in "Epiphany," "The Man Who Ate His Book: The Best of ducts.org," "FreeFall," "The American Dream Anthology," "The New Verse News" and "Verse Daily."
