This seminar includes a practicum. Please come ready with either:

  • TEN of your best unpublished poems or
  • TWO of your best unpublished creative prose works.

“We will work with the time available to prepare your work for submission,” Max says. “I’m optimistic we can both raise some money and help some folks publish.”

Max’s poetry appears frequently in literary journals, with recent publication in Confrontation, Hubbub, Delmarva Review, The Comstock Review, Ibbetson Street, and many others. He has been anthologized in Hunger Enough: Living Spiritually in a Consumer Society, from Pudding House, and in Except for Love: New England Poets Inspired by Donald Hall, from Encircle Publications. He holds an MFA from Emerson College.
