Welcome!

The Milkweed Poetry Workshop is a weekly, generative workshop that invites people to:

* make poems * hear poems * share poems *

Through it's affiliation with the Milkweed Gallery in Sugar Loaf, NY, the workshop opens it's doors to people of all ages and backgrounds to promote the voices and visions of those living int he Hudson Valley (and beyond). The workshop has had over 110 weekly sessions and has hosted hundreds of poets and "non-poets" to enjoy in the power of shared creative expression.

In Summer 2017, we launched the Milkweed Poetry Journal with the help of a grant from the Orange County Arts Council. The journal showcases work from members of the workshop and the greater literary community. Volume I can now be read online, with Volume II to follow in Fall 2018! Print copies of the journal can also be purchased from our store. All proceeds go to further supporting the local poetry community in the Hudson Valley.
