St. Louis Poetry Center’s signature program, the Sunday Workshops are the longest running poetry writing workshops in St. Louis. These workshops are offered as a free service to local poets, with notable poet critics commenting on pre-submitted works in a friendly and constructive group setting.
Poetry workshops are held the third Sunday of each month, September through April, except for December. The guest poet critic will lead the workshop and provide professional critique on a selection of the pre-submitted manuscripts. All poems submitted will receive written comments.
Upcoming Guest Critics:
January 20: Allison Joseph
Submissions Due: January 13
