Kalliope is a poetry workshop based on exercises illustrating a variety of basic poetic theory and technique. Members of the workshop learn by critiquing each others exercises, as well as by writing and being critiqued. The workshop is "a poetry course with lab".

Membership is open to everyone with a desire to learn more of the craft of poetry and a willingness to work at it. You will get out of the course what you put into it, so please be willing to spend several hours a week on critique, as well as on study and writing, if you sign up for Kalliope.

Kalliope has moved to Onelist.Com, which gives us excellent protection from spam and makes managing the list easier for NetMama Anitra!

There are a growing number of Kalliope lists, keeping the numbers of posts on each list to a manageable level and providing a variety of atmospheres for individual taste.
