Class Description

Join Rob Schlegel, winner of the 2014 Grub Street National Book Prize in Poetry for January Machine (Four Way Books), for an evening of poetry and conversation. Rob will be visiting us from Walla Walla, WA for the weekend as part of the national book prize festivities. At 6:30, poet, critic and book prize juror Stephen Burt will introduce Rob, who will read from his work and take your questions about the poems and about the craft of poetry in general. Following the reading, there will be a wine and cheese reception and Rob will be available to sign books. This event is free and open to the public. To learn more about the Grub Street Book Prize and January Machine, visit our Book Prize page.

Scholarships Format/Location

Thanks to the excellent literary citizenship of our donors, scholarships are available for all GrubStreet classes. To apply, click the gray "APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIP" button. In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class. Please await our scholarship committee's decision before registering for the class. We cannot hold spots in classes, so the sooner you apply, the better. Scholarships cannot be applied retroactively.

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!

Zoom Participation:

Students are not required to turn their camera on, but are encouraged to participate any way they feel comfortable through functions such as the live chat, emoji reactions, and unmuting the microphone. Learn more about using Zoom here.

Zoom Accessibility:

We ask that instructors enable closed captioning and send a transcript of the session after class. You can also enable closed captioning at any time during the meeting. If your instructor forgets to send the transcript, just send ’em an email!
