Online Beginning Poetry Writing Class Offered in July

The online Memoir Writing Class has just started and is a great success! I look forward to reading the students’ writing as it develops. If you are looking for a summer online writing class, I encourage you to consider taking my upcoming Beginning Poetry Writing Workshop. This class is 100% online and will integrate a daily writing routine into your everyday life.

Email me (chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com) anytime with questions or to register. I will save you a virtual seat in the class and include payment information. You can pay via check or Paypal.

Beginning Poetry Writing Workshop (online): Wednesday, July 21st – Sunday, July 25

Interested in writing poetry, but not sure where to start? In this workshop we will discuss how to write, edit and read a poem carefully. Short reading, writing and peer editing assignments will be given throughout the week. A virtual writing “staycation,” you’ll learn to integrate a regular writing routine into your life. The environment will be a safe and nurturing one which will challenge you to discover your individual voice.

You will write and workshop your original work with published writing teacher Chloé Miller and receive longer, individual feedback from her on your two longer assignments. Through group peer editing sessions, you will hone your editing abilities and receive additional feedback on your work.

The class will be held for one week from Wednesday, July 21st – Sunday, July 25. Class enrollment is limited to ten adult students. Beginners are encouraged in this class. Adults (18 +) only, please. The class will be held in a private Google group that will be available 24/7. With a free Gmail account, you will be ready to start.

The cost is $100.00 payable by check due July 15th. Chloé’s current and previous private writing students receive a 10% discount. To register, email Chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com.
