Local poet holds eight-week course in Cold Spring

Jeffrey McDaniel is offering an eight-week multi-genre creative writing workshop on Thursday nights (and one Wednesday) from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. in his writing studio in the village of Cold Spring. The next session begins on Wednesday, April 15, and will meet on Thursdays, April 23 and 30, May 7, 14, 21 and 28, and June 11. (No class on June 4.)

Each class begins with a close reading of a published piece of writing, and then the conversation transitions to student work. Occasionally there are in-class writing exercises. It is $200 for the eight-week session.

McDaniel is the author of five books of poetry, most recently Chapel of Inadvertent Joy (University of Pittsburgh Press). He is a recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, and his work appeared in Best American Poetry in 1994 and 2010. A judge for the 2010 National Book Award in poetry, he teaches creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College. Email [email protected] for more information.
