     Winter Tangerine is an online literary & arts organization dedicated to disrupting the status quo through evocative poetry, prose and visual arts. Every summer we hold two sessions of our three-week writing program for passionate writers looking to take their work to the next level. Find out more!

    The Winter Tangerine Summer Online Workshop has a unique and innovative format and syllabus. Participants free write daily and battle in word wars to practice abandoning writing inhibitions

    Each week will focus on a different theme–Character Study, Aesthetic, and Absurdity. During Character Study, we will explore the inner depths of your characters. In Aesthetic, we will consider how tone, specific sets of imagery, and an overarching mood contribute to the atmosphere of your work. During Absurdity week, we’ll shatter the logic in your writing and create new meaning from the broken shards. Throughout the three weeks we encourage playfulness over perfection -- our assignments and prompts encourage experimentation with form and style.

    In addition to supportive advisors who offer positive and helpful feedback on assignments, we're continuing our Guest Seminars featuring hour-long live web classes with our favorite writers. Past Guest Seminars have included Shinji Moon, Angel Nafis, Richard Siken and Danez Smith. This summer, our Guest Seminars will include Hanif Abdurraqib, Franny Choi, Safia Elhillo, Bhanu Kapil, and  Rachel McKibbens.

    The program is for dedicated, passionate writers looking to take their work to the next level. Winter Tangerine’s Online Writer’s Workshop will not focus on classes and “teaching” writing, but rather immersing the participants in evocative poetry and prose, critique and discussion.
