Office Hours Poetry Workshop is a community-based writing workshop for poets who show a demonstrated commitment to writing. We provide continued support for manuscript-development and everyday writing. The workshop culminates in a public reading each fall and spring to showcase sizzling new work.
We welcome all poets, especially people of color, LGBTQ+, and those who are womxn-identified. Our name derives from our side hustle. Many of us are freelance, adjunct instructors, who continue to thrive in the margins of academia.
The workshop fellowship meets every two weeks following the fall and spring academic calendar with optional sessions like book club and generative write ins. We charge zero fees to join. Interested writers should submit 6 pages of work to be reviewed by the workshop facilitator email@example.com or drop us a line to learn more!
