Intensive Poetry Workshops with Marcia Falk
Ongoing poetry workshops, which take place in Marcia's Berkeley home, are designed to help you move forward in your writing through lively discussions and constructive critiques. Each participant receives personal guidance from the instructor and feedback from class members in a serious, honest, and supportive environment. Our primary focus is on writing by class members, but part of each session is given over to reading outside poets, with an eye to finding resources and models for our own creative work. Send e-mail to Marcia Falk for more information on current classes.
Private consultations, semi-private tutorials, and manuscript reviews are also available.
