About the lesson
Every poet, curious or established, comes to the table with questions. After the first free course, I will tailor a syllabus to meet the needs of the artist. To meet these goals, there will be a healthy balance of lessons in craft, poetry folklore, composition of poems, and feedback in a workshop environment. It is my goal to have the student leaving with confidence in their craft and elevated level.

I'm a graduate from the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts (NILA). My mentors there were Carolyne Wright, Marvin Bell, and David Wagoner, for whom I was a Teacher's Assistant three semesters running. For over 15 years I participated in a literary workshop environment; for three years ran an international monthly writing contest that awarded funds to the best. I know what gets published. I've mentored and taught dozens of poets and novelists. I run an online critique group to improve the grammar, craft, and myth-lore of creative writing, A number have gotten published. I value self-expression and the best way to get it done.
Perfect! Very easy to go and get thing going with and happy to have had this lessons with. Thanks Robert.
- Robert's response : Adil is an aggressive learner. I look forward to witnessing rapid growth.
Perfect! Mr. Robert is a boon. My daughter is very passionate about poetry and I really did not know how to support her. I approached Mr. Robert so that he could guide my daughter and help her with her writing goals. He was quick to respond and immediately fixed an appointment. We have started our writing sessions with Mr. Robert. He is a dedicated teacher and he is always on time . He encourages his student and their writing while honing their skills in the most gentle but effective manner. Great teacher!!
- Robert's response : Madhalasa is an amazing poet, but even more important, an amazing student. She's insightful, cognitive, and quite capable of inter-connective expression. I look forward to seeing more of her work as well as guiding her in poetry, which is of course it's own language in so many ways. Thanks
Perfect! Robert is an amazing teacher! He is always prepared and does his best to make sure the class meets your expectations! I highly recommend Robert!
- Robert's response : Nothing is more refreshing than a student that aggressively attacks their work. Wendy is such a student. It was a pleasure to see her efforts and then take on the quality of her questions. Thanks Wendy.
Perfect! I had such a great lesson today that I'm signing up for 18 weeks with Robert! He's an excellent teacher; and that's coming from one MFA to another. My degree is in Fine Art/painting. I'm happy that I found a fabulous writing and poetry prof to help me with this form of creative expression.
- Robert's response : What a pleasure it is to go on a journey with someone who has an equally curious mind. I've enjoyed the first two hours, which are a promise of good things to come. Looking forward to the journey!
