Sage’s teaching philosophy

With an MFA in poetry from New York University and 20+ years as an instructor, I give collegiate-level feedback on craft. My critique style is to identify what’s working in student’s poems—because I believe leveraging our strengths evokes our best work—with a focus on understanding and contributing to each student’s unique voice and vision.

Benefits of the Fierce Poetry Workshop

  • Expert guidance from a seasoned poet and experienced instructor
  • Accountability and inspiration to create new poems every week
  • Practice in developing critical thinking skills in response to others’ poems and your own
  • Valuable feedback to help inform revision and the evolution of your poetics
  • The opportunity to consider and cultivate the craft of poetry in a supportive community
  • Inspiring and invigorating exploration of the practice of poetry

“I’ve become so engaged and inspired by this course that I’m building poems in my sleep and can’t wait to get to my computer to sort out a fraction of the material!” — Mary

“I feel that Sage’s feedback has encouraged me to dream, fly and weave rather than simply walk or run.” — Maureen

“Sage, your feedback opened doors that had been long closed.”  — Polly
