Published poet teaches eager students to improve craft and poems with an eye toward publication.

Methodology

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.

Background

I'm a graduate from the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts (NILA). My mentors there were Carolyne Wright and David Wagoner, for whom I was a Teacher's Assistant for three semesters. For ten 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.

Robert's resume

I have dual MFAs in Fiction and Poetry (I've been mentored by David Wagoner, Carolyne Wright, and Bruce Holland Rogers), these are terminal degrees - meaning: there is no further training or learning beyond these degrees, except what I continue to improve on my own. Since 2005, I've spent every week workshopping and improving the manuscripts of others, including my own. I have a bachelor of science degree in Communication, with the intention to improve my ability to engage an audience. I'm the creator and publisher of the "15 Poem Chapbook Series", of which 5 books have been published and 4 more to be delivered by 2021. I've published internationally as well as nationally in both hardcopy print and online publications. I've contributed, mentored, and midwifed a number of publications over the years. As a former entertainer (child stage star, performer, composer, musician) I'm consciously aware of the audience when writing.
