Cecilia Woloch - by Richard BebanParis Poetry Workshop
with Cecilia Woloch & Friends

June 14-20, 2014

Part of a 3-week à la carte experience for poets in Paris
with a range of offerings extending from June 6-June 27

Cecilia Woloch invites twelve poets to join her this summer in Paris, a city that loves writers, and that nourishes the imagination and the creative spirit. The Paris Poetry Workshop offers English-speaking poets the opportunity to come together for intensive workshops, intimate talks and public readings.  Participants will be inspired to generate new poems as well as hone their writing skills.

This year's Paris Poetry Workshop is also scheduled to coincide with a number of exciting literary events, allowing participants to spend one, two or three weeks immersed in poetry and in Paris.

Come early, and celebrate the publication of the French version of Cecilia's second book, Tsigan: The Gypsy Poem, on June 6. During this week before the Paris Poetry Workshop begins, Cecilia will be available for one-on-one meetings and manuscript consultations for a reduced fee. Stay after the workshop and join a second workshop that Cecilia will lead in the gallery of her French publisher, Le Scribe-l’Harmattan, from June 23-27. All Paris Poetry Workshop participants will receive priority in this second, low-cost workshop.

All levels are welcome, but prospective participants are asked to send a one-paragraph bio and 3-page writing sample by way of application. For more information visit Paris Poetry Workshop or write to Cecilia at
