THE POETRY ATELIER is a series of sharing writings and writing processes, with writers invited to read their work, workshop their shared submissions, and experiment together in invented group exercises.

THE POETRY ATELIER is an open and inclusive experience at The Space Upstairs. We offer the quality climate of a respectful forum for the reading and assessment of written work, with practical discussions on improving craft, and the opportunity for hearing personal works read aloud by fresh voices.

Bring your work via a flash drive, transparency, or several written copies to share and write on. Or simply bring your ears and your voice to share in the discussions and offer your thoughts.

-Drop-ins welcome; attendees are not required to present a work for review or to read aloud

-All poetry and prose allowed (three pages double-spaced max for prose, or 1-2 short poems)

-All selections offered for feedback are video projected on our wall for all to read and read aloud to the group by author or another participant.
