Winter Tangerine Summer Intensive Workshops 

Jul 26, 2017 | 11:00 am - Jul 29, 2017 | 4:00 pm

Winter Tangerine is holding two sessions of a four-day intensive writing workshop at Poets House. 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. This year’s workshop advisors will be A.K Afferez, Emmanuel Oppong-Yeboah, Marwa Helal, Safia Elhillo, and jayy dodd, led by WT Editor-in-Chief Yasmin Belkhyr. 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, 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 Mahogany Browne, Franny Choi, Angel Nafis, and Sam Sax. These seminars will include a short lecture based off a guided syllabus by the writers, a group-wide discussion, and a Q&A.

Our workshops run from 11AM-4PM. Tuition is $350, 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 July 9th.

This event is made possible through the Poets House Literary Partners Program.
