On the Yahara Writing Center has presented a variety of Mary Oliver appreciation classes and poetry workshops in the Madison area for the last several years. There has been a very warm and enthusiastic reception by participants for these classes. The Madison Area Mary Oliver Society is meant to serve as an extension of these past classes as well as to continue an evolving conversation of appreciation, topics, techniques and feedback.

This workshop needs at least 2 participants to run. If this number is not met, everyone registered will be given the option to receive a refund or put their class credit toward a future class of their choice.
