Published poet gives lessons and workshops in poetry to writers at all stages and levels

About the lesson

I offer informal instruction in the fundamentals of poetry to those who would like to enhance their writing practice. We will analyze and discuss examples of contemporary poetry, engaging with the ideas and identifying the literary techniques that give them emotional resonance. Lessons include a workshopping component in which we review and discuss one of the student's poems in progress.

About Bridget

I have taught writing at the university level for nearly three years. My approach is process and not product-oriented, but students are encouraged to generate new material for each lesson and to grow their editorial instincts. My aim is to excite literary curiosity, which in turn fuels creativity, and to support other poets in developing their craft.
