Sheila-Na-Gig online is happy to announce “Let’s Make it a Sestina Summer,” a two-part virtual workshop with editor Hayley Mitchell Haugen.
This workshop is geared toward writers who are familiar with poetry, but who may be less familiar with forms, and the sestina in particular. Participants will meet with Haugen online via Zoom or Teams (TBD) for a short lecture on the form and an exercise to help generate material (about 45 mins to 1 hour). They will then write a sestina on their own over the next few days and return to the workshop a week later for a critique by Haugen and the workshop peers.
Workshops are limited to five participants each.
One Workshop remains open:
