You’re invited to an Online Writing Workshop at 7:00pm Eastern every Tuesday in January (Zoom details below).
Here are this month’s themes:
- January 5: January and New Beginnings
- January 12: Darkness
- January 19: Justice
- January 26: Success
A prompt will be offered at the beginning of the workshop and remain on screen for the entire hour. All prompts and exercises are suitable for any genre of creative writing. Whatever can be done in poetry can be done in prose (to great effect).
A suggested goodwill donation of $10.00 helps greatly and can be remitted through PayPal or Zelle (firstname.lastname@example.org), Venmo (@Lisa-Hase-Jackson), or by check (contact me for address).

The Poet’s Toolkit
Five week self-paced online workshop for writers
While this five-week course will focus on several of the most integral craft elements of poetry writing, it is suitable for writers in any genre. Whether new to creative writing or a long-time practitioner, this online class will help you bring greater focus and new energy to your writing.
Each lesson will center on a particular skill and will include sample readings and discussion of the week’s craft element. A selection of representative poems meant to spark lively discussion will be included as will a number of fun and engaging writing prompts.
Students are invited to write a poem each week in response to any of the readings or prompts. While sharing is always optional, students may do so on a private discussion board. Students are also free to simply follow along with the weekly lessons.
Feedback on poems from me is available on request.
- Week One: Drawing on vivid details and sensory images for your poems
- Week Two: Creating surprising similes, metaphors, and other figurative images
- Week Three: Narrative to imagination (moving from chronology to association)
- Week Four: Reinvigorating syntax and sentences
- Week Five: Serious fun with serious revision
Price: $20.00 for ala cart classes or $75.00 for all five weeks. Scholarships are available to students and recent graduates. Contact Lisa at email@example.com for more information or to register.
