Group Workshops

I teach community workshops in Maine and beyond. Much of what I offer is through the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance, but I am also available to teach at your organization or institution. Please get in touch!

Past workshops I’ve offered in a community setting include:

  • Wild Life, Wild Poem: Reclaiming Your Untamed Voice
  • A Question of Style: A Poetry Workshop in Playing with Art Movements & Aesthetics
  • Writing with Images/Writing with Power
  • How to Write Poems for Your Lover(s): A Talk & Workshop in the Art of Erotic Poetics
  •  Going to the Places that Scare You: A Multi-Genre Workshop in Literary Risk-Taking 
  • Po-Biz: A 101 Seminar on Poetry Publishing
  • Poems from the Tarot Workshop
  • Playing with Translation 
  • Free Range Poetry: The Fine Art of Making a Mess
  • Hybrid and Transgenre Forms
  • beginning-level intensives
  • intermediate sessions
  • advanced-level intensives 

Here are what a couple students had to say about their experiences in my workshops:

Thank you so very much for another lovingly work-ful course this weekend. You are brilliant and generous, and as it seems that I  have not gotten my fill, I’ll be applying for the next workshop you have coming up.

Arielle is a wealth of knowledge! She knew how to answer each of my questions and was very helpful.

Thanks sooo much for teaching a great, pushing class! It was enlightening and challenging and warm in ways I hadn’t expected.

Arielle is one of the most intelligent and best writers and teachers in Maine. It’s a very high level of knowledge and pedagogy.
