Retriever Poets Poetry Workshop - LAUNCHING
Join us in our workshop hosted by Lia Purpura!
Join us in our first poetry workshop hosted by Lia Purpura! In this generative workshop "Launching" -- we will discover ways to get ourselves in motion and stay in motion, learn how to develop a practice of collecting (images, scents, incidents, moments, words, dreams, insights), and share work with each other.

A finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for On Looking (essays, Sarabande Books), her awards include Guggenheim, NEA, and Fulbright Fellowships, as well as four Pushcart Prizes, the Associated Writing Programs Award in Nonfiction, and others.
