New online Writing Workshops I’m teaching this summer

for all levels beginning June 4th. See below for details.

Poet’s Companion Writing Group

June 4-June 25, 2021, Fridays from 2-3pm on Zoom

Each session of this four-week workshop will focus on exploring a different writing prompt, allowing us to take time to write separately before coming together to share what we’ve written. Working from the book The Poet’s Companion by Kim Addonizio and Dorianne Laux, we’ll aim to spark ideas for more in-depth poems as we support and encourage each other.  This hour-long workshop is geared toward writers of all levels.  Poet and journalist Kristin D’Agostino currently teaches writing at New England College. Her work has been featured in The Paterson Literary Review, on Poets Online and on Vermont Public Radio.

Cost: $32 through Charlotte Senior Center. Email me at k.dagostino@gmail.com for more information or to sign up.

Exploring Your Roots Memoir Writing Workshop

August 5- September 9, 2021, Thursdays, 2-3:30pm on Zoom

In this six-week memoir-writing class we will read poetry, graphic novels and memoirs by well-known writers including Colette, Marjane Satrapi and Maria Mazziotti Gillan that explore various cultures through the lens of family, foods and tradition.  We will then write and share our own memoirs with the aim of exploring our own family heritage. Writer and educator Kristin D’Agostino writes about Italy and her Italian-American roots for Italian America magazine.

Cost: $72 through Charlotte Senior Center. Email me at k.dagostino@gmail.com for more information or to sign up.
