Regardless of whether or not you have acquired a formal education that included poetry, poetry exercises and workshops with other poets can be invaluable in finding new approaches, discovering new poets, and honing your craft. Below is a list of poetry workshops that are free online. If you don’t mind some monetary investment, there are some fine paid workshops ($150 – $350) online as well—generally small class sizes that run several weeks with lots of personal feedback and instruction. I’ll mention my favorites here: The Poetry Barn, Wychwood Writers Workshop, and The Loft all have excellent instructors and I’ve enjoyed and learned so much from the courses I’ve taken.
