Community Poetry Workshops

Poetry@Tech offers free community workshops that are always free and open to the public. The workshops are held on Saturdays each spring, and are open to poets of every skill level. There is also an ongoing year-long poetry workshop for advanced writers who have attended multiple Poetry@Tech Saturday workshops. Our year-long intensive workshop has been led by the poet Katie Chaple, and generally met the first Saturday of each month from September through May.

We will be bringing these Community Poetry Workshops back soon! Please join our email list to stay up to date.

Here's what Poetry@Tech workshop participants are saying about the program:

The Poetry@Tech workshop community is priceless. I look so forward to sharing with the Tech group; their fellowship and input is so enriching. I never submit a poem to a journal unless it has been workshopped. I constantly refer back to their notes about my work.


David Thomas Martinez leads Spring 2019 Workshop

As a guy who pounds nails for a living, I was extremely hesitant when my wife urged me to attend my first Poetry@Tech workshop. I feared showing my ignorance, that I was reaching beyond 'my station'. Instead I found an amazing group of folks, from all walks of life, who shared a passion for poetry.

I can't overstate the relief I felt upon discovering Poetry@Tech's workshops. Here were serious writers who were also readers. Here were writers who were eager for honest critique and willing to give insightful evaluation. Here were writers who were not interested in the artificial mystique of posing as poets.

Not only has my writing evolved and developed in ways that are exciting to me, I have also come a meaningful distance in recovering my sense of who I am.


"I am grateful for Georgia Tech’s previous and ongoing support of Poetry@Tech workshops, readings and other events. Poetry@Tech has profoundly enhanced and improved the quality of my life in more ways than are countable."
