Wednesday Night Poetry Workshop with Jose Hernandez Diaz

The West Coast’s longest-running free poetry workshop welcomes new and seasoned poets to share new work and provide feedback. Please be prepared to share one poem. This workshop will be hosted via the Zoom video-conferencing platform. Please sign up for each workshop session at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting, and you will be contacted with instructions on how to join the meeting.

Please spend some time before the workshop learning how to share documents via Zoom. It will keep the session moving if you're able to make your poem viewable quickly and easily. Here's an instructive video that might help.

The workshop can sometimes reach high levels of attendance, which means not everyone will get a chance to read every session.

Zoom link will be emailed on the day of the workshop

Workshop attendees are expected to participate in a respectful, constructive, and considerate manner. Beyond Baroque reserves the right to remove individuals from our workshops, virtual or otherwise, if they are not respecting the space, fellow participants, or facilitator.
