Make your voice heard with poetry and jazz!

Explore the intersection between music and the written word in our free City Verses Poetry Workshops for adults (ages 18+). In the virtual classroom, we’ll read and discuss work by Franny Choi, Natalie Diaz, Paul Tran, and other poets to guide us in our own writing. Our generative prompts will encourage writers to follow the possibilities of world-building and mythmaking. With a strong emphasis on the musicality of language and form, we’ll meditate and write about our life’s pillars, joys, and ongoing questions.

Our faculty of poets from the Rutgers-Newark MFA Creative Writing Program look forward to seeing you in one or more of the 5 available workshops! No experience is necessary.
