The Voices Israel Group of Poets

Voices Israel Poetry Workshops

Voices Israel organizes occasional poetry workshops, usually two to four times a year.

Workshops may be led by one or more Voices Israel members, visiting poets or academics in the field. They typically follow the format of one or more presentations followed by writing time, and each workshop is organized around one or two specific theme(s) - see the workshops on this site for examples.  Typically they are several hours long; during the Corona pandemic we are holding a series of mini-workshops via Zoom, limited to two one-hour presentations-plus-exercise, since  two hours seems to be about the maximum time that people can comfortably interact with a computer screen.

Following most workshops, participants are invited to submit the poems they wrote at the workshop - or revised versions of them - for inclusion in a workshop chapbook. Recent chapbooks in pdf format are accessible online from this website - see the links from the menu. Most (excluding those from Zoom workshops held during the Corona pandemic) are also available in print form for a nominal fee, usually around 20  - 25 NIS.  Poets - this is an opportunity to make your work more widely known without limiting you in any way: inclusion of a poem in a workshop chapbook does not preclude publication or submission elsewhere.

Please note: Poems published on this Voices Israel website and files linked to it, including in our newsletters, competition announcements, and workshop chapbooks, are sole copyright of the poets themselves. Voices Israel expressly does not give permission for reproduction or syndication elsewhere without the poets' written permission.

Members who are interested in organizing a workshop, or have a theme they would like to attend a workshop on, are invited to contact either our Secretary, Linda Suchy, or our President, Judy Koren.
