The Sunday Workshops are the longest running poetry writing workshops in St. Louis, offered as a free service to local poets with noted poet critics commenting on presubmitted works in a friendly and constructive group setting.
With either method, submit only one poem and no longer than one page, in vertical format with only one column of text. This way we can cover the work of more poets during each workshop. Use 12 or 14 point font only. If using a pen name, provide real name and mailing address. Poet should plan to attend the workshop.
Everyone, regardless of experience or membership in SLPC, is encouraged to participate. You do not need to submit a poem to attend. Workshops are free and open to the public. Please scroll down to see upcoming poet critics.
