Spring & Fall Workshops

The Poetry Society of Vermont holds their Spring & Fall Workshop at a different locations around the state. A typical workshop begins with a morning council meeting, followed by lunch with a poetry workshop in the afternoon. The afternoon workshop is led by a guest poet who will provide valuable feedback on member poems and guidance to the group on workshopping poems submitted. We are mindful of our critic’s time and do our best to offer feedback in the 2-hour time allowance.


Please email (to be determined) to reserve your spot and/or submit your poem. Use the Subject line of “Spring Workshop” or “Fall Workshop” followed by your name. If you’d like to come and won’t be submitting a poem, please let us know. Please also include any dietary restrictions you have so we can make sure there are options for lunch.
