NoHoPoCo will host two types of workshops in 2019.

First Tuesday Writing Workshops are guest-led by touring and working poets. These workshops will be generative and you will create new work. After each workshop, our guest poet will give an exclusive reading of their own work for the workshop attendees. These workshops will accommodate up to 15 people. In order to pay the workshop leader, we charge $10 per seat, but will never turn anyone away for lack of funds. Check out our event page for details on First Tuesday Writing Workshops.

  • Begins at 7:30 PM

  • At the World War II Club / 50 Conz St, Northampton MA

  • Bring a notebook and a writing utensil or a laptop

  • Be ready to write!

Third Tuesday Editing Workshops are locally led circles where you can bring a poem and receive feedback from your peers. This is how we become better poets! Editing workshops will accommodate up to 8 attendees, so that every poem can receive at least 15 minutes of compassionate critique. Free.

  • Begins at 7:30 PM

  • At the Resistance Center / 2 Conz St, Suite 2B, Northampton MA

  • Bring 8 printed copies of your poem (or print at the Resistance Center)

  • Be ready to listen and contribute!

Come to a workshop!

You may sign up for a workshop up to one month in advance. There are two steps to signing up for a workshop: the form and the donate button.

Fill out the form below to sign up for either the upcoming First Tuesday Writing Workshop or the upcoming Third Tuesday Editing Workshop. Someone from the NoHoPoCo crew will get back to you within 24 hours to confirm your spot in the workshop (or your place on the waitlist). If you submit a form less than 24 hours before the workshop you want to attend, assume you’re on the waitlist and someone will contact you ASAP if there is a seat for you.

Below the form, you will notice a PayPal Donate button. First Tuesday Writing Workshops are $10. If you can’t pay $10, pay only what you can! If what you can pay is zero dollars, that’s ok! If you can pay more than $10, please consider doing so, to allow us to keep our pay-what-you-can structure.

Third Tuesday Editing Workshops are no cost. PayPal donations gratefully accepted.
