Online, March 27 - April 24, 2024

Each Wednesday, 6:30pm EDT

Limited to 12 participants. Led by Christine E. Salvatore.

Get ready to rev your engine! Join this exhilarating, generative ride through poetry. Each week, we’ll read poems that celebrate diverse voices, and then receive an inspiring writing prompt to work on until our next meeting. From shifting poetic gears to navigating uncharted roads, this prompt will challenge us to delve into our own experiences and perspectives. We’ll take collaborative pit stops to share new drafts and offer each other feedback, enjoying camaraderie as we explore potential tune-ups for future revisions. Beginning and experienced poets are welcome.

Presented by Murphy Writing of Stockton University.

Our Participants Say it Best

"The Getaway was exactly what I needed to recharge as a writer and start the year off on the right foot. From the supportive community to the hotel’s friendly atmosphere, I left feeling inspired. Now I can't wait to get back to work on the many projects I've lined up for myself. I only wish the Getaway could last all year!" ~ Cate, Pittsburgh, PA
