Writing Workshop at San Jose State University, July 9-13 and 16-20, 2018, features five workshops given by talented teacher consultants with the SJ Area Writing Project.


Poetry and Power

​“Poetry is ordinary language raised to the Nth power. Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words” (Paul Engle). Would you like to spend a couple of weeks diving into different poetic forms and learning to write and perform the kind of poetry that has purpose and moves an audience? Join Ms. J in Poetry and Power for a “slamming” good time this summer!
