Event description

Description

Writing poetry is all about finding the right words, pacing, sounds and structure to capture a feeling... putting into words those emotional impulses that strike us out of the blue.


While this may appear difficult, poets use skills they've learned in order to bring their words to life. And that's what this poetry workshop will show you.

This is a hands-on poetry workshop so you can write and publish your own, original poems. Under the guidance of experienced Carleton U lecturer and publisher - David Hamilton (that's me) - you will benefit from weekly writing exercises, class discussions of your material, my own professional editing, and one-on-one engagement so that your poems come to life.

We will be meeting every Thursday evening in October (4 times in all).

At the end of the workshop, your poems will be published in my own independent collection of poems and made available to the public through Amazon. And of course, royalties from all sales will be distributed to all writers.

The modest fee for the workshop covers my time and costs, plus you also receive one (1) free copy of the Collection and have lifetime access to my writers Facebook group.

Class size is limited, so sign up today!

David

ps. Interested but can't make it Thursday evenings? No problem! For anyone who cannot make it, I will set up individual skype or phone calls to discuss your work. You will still send it to me and others for feedback and comments, so don't be shy :)


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No. Anyone, regardless of age, is invited to write!

I'm more interested in writing stories. Can I still participate?

I would never discourage writers of any genre, but if stories are your thing, there are other writing workshops available that might be more helpful. Check the list here: http://www.davidallanhamilton.com/writing-workshops.html

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the workshop?

The #7 and the #4 and O-train all serve Carleton University. There is also parking available in the evenings but unfortunately, you have to pay for that.

What can I bring into the workshop?

Bring any poem ideas you're working on. If you haven't started anything yet, that's okay because we'll be generating all kinds of ideas. You will have some wonderful poems by the end of the workshop. Bring your laptop or writing pad. Bring your enthusiasm!

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Send me an email at davidallanhamilton00@gmail.com

What's the refund policy?

If, after the first evening, you really don't want to have your story published, then I will refund your money MINUS $20 to cover my time.

I have to work on Thursday nights. Is there a way I can still participate?

Absolutely! Just sign up and then we'll work on your story together online using all the tools available to us: skype, google docs etc. You will benefit from feedback and comments and be an active participant.

I can't make the workshop but I have some poems already that I'd like to include in the publication. Can I just do that?

For a nominal fee to cover my editing and publishing costs, I will include your work in the Collection of poems. Email me to discuss further.
