Winter Tangerine is holding three sessions of our four-day intensive writing workshops at Poets House in the heart of New York City this summer.
We design our workshops for writers who want to challenge themselves and their work. We won't teach you how to write: instead, we want to collectively build new lenses meant to create dynamic readings and writings. As a student, you'll engage in daily writing activities, lesson-based writing prompts, & group discussions led by a team of enthusiastic advisors. Together, we will discuss identity & craft, and study a variety of writers, visual artists, and other creators. We favor playfulness over perfection, and we’ll encourage you to experiment with form and style: we want you to find what makes you electric.
Throughout the workshop, you'll have the opportunity to peruse the Poets House’s 70,000 volumes of poetry, have lunch at the edge of the Hudson River, and work with an intimate group of writers committed to their craft. You'll write every day & you will give and receive thoughtful feedback every day. The workshop will close out with a reading at Poets House, open to the public, with celebratory cake — and you will have the opportunity to read from the body of work you'll have created during the workshop.
The workshop will also feature Guest Seminars by Chen Chen, Shira Erlichman, Nabila Lovelace and other phenomenal writers. These seminars will include a short lecture based off a guided syllabus written and curated by the speaker, a group-wide discussion, and a Q&A. Guest Seminars for our NYC Workshops have included Angel Nafis, Sam Sax, Safia Elhillo, Xandria Phillips, Sarah Maria Medina, and Julian Randall.
The first session will be from July 11th to the 14th. The second session will be from August 1st to the 4th. The third session will be from August 22nd to the 25th. Our workshops run from 11AM-5PM each day -- we know that this means daytime-working writers will find it difficult to join this year, so we hope & plan to offer evening workshops soon. Tuition is $375, and we offer financial aid to those with need. There is no application fee. There is no age minimum or maximum, and no experience is necessary. Applications close April 1st. What are you waiting for?
Join us this summer & catalyze self-revolutions.
These workshops are made possible through Poets House’s Literary Partners Program.
