This ongoing poetry workshop is for poets who want to engage not just in words but the best words in the best order; not just ideas but ideas that reveal the things of this world anew.  This ongoing poetry workshop is for poets who want to engage in a deep dialogue about the work of the participants as well as that of established poets. We use a prescribed process to discuss the poems submitted, explore options for publication and present occasional readings at public venues.


As the longest continuing student (and unofficial president) of WAW it is my honor and delight to share with others about this workshop. As a voracious reader I am often inspired by what I read. hearing new work brought in by my classmates is another way of staying inspired, of keeping my poetry edge sharpened. The consistently high caliber writing that comes out of WAW is something I am proud to be a part of. Terry's insight and experience challenge and elevate us. Whatever genre a person chooses to work in at WAW, there is only foward motion once you begin. I am always amazed at the brilliance that comes through the doors of WAW.
