First Book of the Summer Young Writers Worskhop, 2022! Sessions II & III are ready for you!

Come write with me and join the fun! Summer Session I is in the “books!”, resulting in the book of poetry above. Sessions II is on the way and Summer Session III has been added to accommodate a couple of scheduling conflicts due to the plethora of great activities being offered this summer!

  • July 11-13 Summer Session II Fiction Friction: Add a little friction to your fiction by energizing your character’s backstory.
  • August 9-11 Summer Session III/ Summer Sunsets: Make your setting sizzle and book come alive.

As always, you will get a book of our collected writings included in the $90 fee. I also offer a virtual component if you are interested.

Happy Writing,

J.S. Jenson

Poetry is in Bloom this Summer!

Once again Poetry Rules! I have been blessed with another group of “Pesky” poems, written by five of my very talented sixth graders at Holy Rosary and one from me, soon to be displayed in the DL City Park at the First Annual Flowerpot Poetry Walk!

What a great group of creative and dedicated student writers!

A Little Winter Poetry!

Poetry Walk inspired my students and I to have a little fun with wintry words. Here is the result:

Little Snowman

I am a little snowman, small and wide,

Behind tall piles of snow I hide.

With a carrot nose and hat made of felt,

Come play with me before I melt!

-J.S. Jenson, from Sharp Bites and Other Pesky Poems
