So apparently on Friday I accidentally posted my Friday Wrap-Up blog to Referential‘s blog. OOPS! I left it up there though! Didn’t want to delete and lose comments.
For those of you who have been following along you’ve been through: introductions, your first class and your first seminar. Now – the inevitable – you need to have your first workshop where your poems are critiqued and/or where you critique the work of your fellow BlogMFA “degree seekers.”
I debated different ways to do this, especially given that I wanted to avoid people being concerned about posting work in progress that they might want to publish later, so I have set up a Google Group! It is private for now so that what we talk about and post isn’t included in google searches.
Here is what I need you to do if you want to be part of the group: Email me at jessie.carty (at) gmail.com with your email address, name and indicate whether or not you’d like to be the first person to be workshopped. You will have until Sunday March 6th to send your request (I will continue to take requests to join after that date, but just not for the first workshopped person). Once I have all the requests in, I will then add everyone to the group who has requested and I will announce the workshop guidelines as well as who will be the first to have their work critiqued/reviewed/discussed etc.
If you are the selected poet you will submit one poem to start and then once everyone has had a chance, perhaps will consider doing more than one poem at a time.
In the interim. How about a laugh to start your week?
Looking forward to starting the group!
