The Poetry is Not a Luxury Series for women-identifying writers are poem & prompt classes that meet 1-3 times to look at a specific topic as it is explored in the work of contemporary women poets.
Taking its name from the Audre Lorde essay, Poetry is Not a Luxury is run very similarly to the eight-week SOBI workshops, but is meant to allow more people who may not be able to commit to a longer workshop the chance to dip into the experience.
The next Poetry is Not a Luxury workshop will focus on the theme of THE BODY in April 2024, Times/Days TBD. Cost: $60 payable by check, Paypal, or Venmo (@kathrynpetruccelli). Write me at montereybound AT gmail DOT com to register.

Possible themes in the works for future:
Keeping Company with the Spirits
Language and its Limitations
Self-Portrait with Poem
Religion & Politics
