Office Hours Poetry Workshop

Provides post-MFA poets access to continued support for manuscript-development and everyday writing. The workshop culminates in a public reading each fall and spring to showcase sizzling new work. 

We welcome all poets, especially people of color,  LGBTQ+, and those who are woman-identified. Our name derives from our side hustle. Many of us are freelance, adjunct instructors, who continue to thrive in the margins of academia.  

Each member workshops a poem every session, thus, we curtail membership at or below 8 people to allow for busy schedules. The workshop meets every two weeks following the fall and spring academic calendar. We charge zero fees to join. Interested writers should submit 6 pages of work to be reviewed by the workshop facilitator sarahmariesala@gmail.com or drop us a line to learn more!

*This event is funded in part by Poets & Writers through public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
