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.
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.
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.
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.
A sui generis seismic experience. No other cyberhub has so fruitfully convulsed the creative tectonics of my mind.
