Are you a veteran of a war who writes, or who would like to write? Or do you know one?
In the spring, Frequency is holding a poetry workshop for veterans of war.
Details below. While we’re waiting on a few grants to see how many vets we can accommodate, we are committed to scholarships for this class for any vet who needs one.
A Poetry Workshop for Veterans of War
10 weeks, April-June (dates TBD
location: School One in Providence (handicapped accessible)
This 10-week poetry workshop is intended for veterans of war. It means to provide a safe and welcoming place for veterans to explore writing poetry. We will discuss genre and form and each week read work by other poets for instruction and inspiration. Every meeting will center around a piece of writing to contemplate–either by a workshop participant or by an established or published poet–which we will use as a springboard for writing original work on-site. We will also engage in peer discussion of each other’s work, as well as exercises that push and disrupt the draft process such as: erasure and cut-ups.
Contact us at email@example.com for more information.
The second reading of the Frequency anthology Missing Providence was smashing. Thank you to Books on the Square for hosting, and thank you to the writers who so generously shared their work:
Finally, eternal thanks to Ben Williams, who masterminded the anthology!

Hello dear Frequency peeps, Here’s an email we received today from Frequencier Zeely Denmat, now an MFA student at UMass Boston:
I am writing today to inform you of a newly founded literary journal, Topography Magazine, that is currently accepting submissions for our upcoming December issue… I have taken Frequency workshops before and thought that this journal might be a great opportunity for writers in the Providence community. I am hoping that you might be interested in spreading the word about Topography to the writers at Frequency. Our mission statement and submission information is below. Please let me know if you have any questions. Many thanks!
Mission Statement:Topography explores the way in which our sense of place, where we are and where we come from, informs the writers we become. Our geographical and cultural identities, like topography itself, are multi-dimensional. The magazine publishes exceptional fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that centers around developing a sense of place in America.
Do you have a personal essay, short story, or poem, that explores sense of place? If so, please submit your work to: firstname.lastname@example.org.Our deadline for submissions is November 16th. Please note that our magazine cannot offer compensation at this time.For more information please visit our website: https://topographymag.wordpress.com/
