Lunch time poetry workshop with Kate Gray


Celebrate National Poetry Month by writing every weekday in April. Quick and easy, spend lunch (12-12:30, EST) writing.


How it works: you'll sign up for one week at a time, and each day I'll start the Zoom call with a 5-minute guided meditation, landing on a prompt. Then, you'll write for 15 minutes, and when we reconvene, I'll read you the poem from which I borrowed the prompt. Boom, that's it. No sharing or feedback. It's all about pen-to-page, fingers-to-keyboard, generating poetry or prose for the whole month. You don't have to be a poet to participate. Join this safe and inspiring session for one week or every week in April and generate anywhere from 5 to 20 new pieces.





April - please choose one or more week(s)



12:00-12:30 EST


For more info, call 203.227.3250 or email



Kate Gray’s first full-length book of poems, Another Sunset We Survive (Cedar House Books, 2007) was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award and followed chapbooks, Bone-Knowing (2006), winner of the Gertrude Press Poetry Prize and Where She Goes (2000), winner of the Blue Light Chapbook Prize. Kate’s first novel, Carry the Sky (Forest Avenue, 2014) stares at bullying without blinking. 


Over the years she’s been awarded residencies at Hedgbrook, Norcroft, and Soapstone, and a fellowship from the Oregon Literary Arts. Her poetry and essays have been nominated for Pushcart Prizes. In Any More, Black Shoe, Kate Gray’s novel-in-progress, she narrates, in Sylvia Plath’s voice, what led to The Bell Jar and her suicide attempt in 1953. 


Kate’s passion comes as a teacher, writing coach, and a volunteer writing facilitator with women inmates. For Every Girl: New & Selected Poems was published by Widow & Orphan Press in March, 2019.
