As a writer with a Ph.D. specialization in poetry, my primary genre, I find it really easy to get boxed in by my own expectations of what I should be able to produce. I started taking Bridget's workshops because I wanted to switch into an entirely new genre where I could feel free to be a novice. And I've done that--because of Bridget's workshops, I'm actually writing in a second genre and about to send out some of that work. What I didn't anticipate is what the workshops would do for me as a poet. I'm writing more poetry and with greater range and ambition than I've had in years. And I know that renewal has come from participating in such a supportive and energizing workshop setting."
