What Others Say

An environment where great ideas are nurtured in a professional, warm manner. The quality of faculty is equal to any live professional workshop I have participated in including the San Miguel Poetry Week.
— Lois P. Jones, poet and host of Poets Cafe (Pacifica Radio) in Los Angeles and co-producer of Moonday East and West
I have grown in confidence, in ability, in critical judgment - the workshops and the ripples afterwards have made me feel I’m part of a community of writers.
— Kim Peter Kovac, Producing Director, Theater for Young Audiences, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
The workshop was a fabulous experience for me and helped to break a bad block I have had for a while! I was able to comfortably fit the assignments into my very busy work week because of the online format, and ended up generating more pieces than were required for the course.
— Ami Kaye, Publisher & Editor of Glass Lyre Press and Pirene’s Fountain
It is not at all an exaggeration to say that Poetry Barn has provided me with a poetry community with whom I can have conversations without any fear. I couldn’t have asked for a better place that would allow me to accomodate poetry writing, while working full-time in an academic job.
— Nandini Dhar, publisher of Elsewhere Lit
A sui generis seismic experience. No other cyberhub has so fruitfully convulsed the creative tectonics of my mind.
— Chris Crittenden, Professor, University of Maine, Machias
