Gail Mazur Writing Poems: Vision & Revision August 9 to August 13, 2021 Tuition: $550 Workshop: 10am-12pm Discipline: Poetry OPEN TO ALL On-site Housing Available

Often the best, most surprising inspirations for revision comes from close readings of poems new to us. Together we’ll look at poems and write new poems. Every day! All of us! We’ll give ourselves and our writing a figurative shake or two, talk constructively and in new ways about each others’ works, and we’ll keep going.

The Pose of Happiness and Nightfire.. She has served on the Writing Committee of FAWC for many years and taught in Emerson College’s and Boston University’s MFA Programs. She lives in Provincetown and Cambridge, where she is founding director of the Blacksmith House Poetry Series.
