Clare Martin offering poetry mentorships

Poet and publisher Clare L. Martin is offering eight-week, one-on-one poetry-writing mentorships with young and new poets, workshops that go beyond an initial critique and that results in a sustained relationship. Emphasis will be placed on craft and form and the participants should have expectations of fast-paced, rigorous writing and reflective, nurturing and honest feedback.
            Martin is the author of “Seek the Holy Dark” by Yellow Flag Press (2017) and Eating the Heart First” by Press 53 (2012) and is founding publisher and editor of MockingHeart Review.
            She will be teaching two sessions: Session I (booking now) Sept. 19 through Nov. 7 and Session II (booking begins Oct. 1) Dec. 5 through Jan. 18, 2017.
            The fee for the eight-week course is $225 (non-refundable due to course size limits, serious inquiries only), payable through PayPal. The spots are limited due to the intimate work and close personal attention offered.
