Early Summer Poetry Workshop w/ Zachary Schomburg
May
28
to Jul 2

Early Summer Poetry Workshop w/ Zachary Schomburg

Come join Zachary Schomburg this early summer at Outlet for a six week Poetry workshop.

This will be a generative poetry workshop for poets at all levels. The main focus will be to sustain a poetry writing practice for six weeks with access to a small group of focused readers. After each workshop, Zachary will give the group a prompt/assignment to complete for the week, one that addresses some aspect of poetry writing brought up in your group conversations. The participants will spend the beginning of the following week's workshop discussing your experiences with the assignment.

The workshop will be capped at 6 people, so everyone will get about 20 minutes of focused group discussion of their own new work at each meeting. The class will meet once per week for 6 total weeks starting on May 28 and meeting every Tuesday from 6:00 to 8:30. 

At the end of six weeks, the group will be enrolled in our own riso workshop with the goal of printing a riso poetry broadside of a poem generated from the poetry workshop.

$200 total per person for the 6 weeks.

No Fair / Fair
Mar
29
to Mar 30

No Fair / Fair

NO FAIR/FAIR is a 2 day + 1 night literary festival celebrating small independent presses that will take place alongside the 2019 AWP Conference in Portland, OR. The book fair will be held from 12-6p on Friday and Saturday at the Bakery Building and will feature 25 small presses. The reading on Friday night will feature readings from over 60 poets, and will be hosted at two venues simultaneously, the Bakery Building and our very own Outlet PDX. The venues are across the street from each other in a neighborhood full of bars and restaurants, and only one mile east from the conference center.

NF/F is not anti-AWP. Our goal is to offer an affordable alternative for small presses that would like to participate in the conference, but don’t quite have the budget to make it happen. Some of our participating presses are also tabling officially at the conference.

For additional information about NF/F, and to access the schedule of readers, visit nofairfair.com

Poetry Workshop w/ Zachary Schomburg
Feb
5
to Mar 12

Poetry Workshop w/ Zachary Schomburg

Come join Zachary Schomburg this early spring at Outlet for a six week Poetry workshop.

This will be a generative poetry workshop for poets at all levels. The main focus will be to sustain a poetry writing practice for six weeks with access to a small group of focused readers. After each workshop, Zachary will give the group a prompt/assignment to complete for the week, one that addresses some aspect of poetry writing brought up in your group conversations. The participants will spend the beginning of the following week's workshop discussing your experiences with the assignment.

The workshop will be capped at 6 people, so everyone will get about 20 minutes of focused group discussion of their own new work at each meeting. The class will meet once per week for 6 total weeks starting on Feb. 5 and meeting every Tuesday from 5:30 to 8:30. 

$200 total per person for the 6 weeks.
Contact Zach to reserve your spot:
