How would you like to work on and develop your poetry under the specialized coaching of the person who encouraged Doll God into existence? It’s now possible to work with Caroline Goodwin from wherever you live through a new project called OneRoom Poetry Group!
I took a prose and then a poetry course through Stanford University from Caroline a few years ago. It was during the poetry course that she said something that completely changed the way I saw my poetry. I’d been
farting around fooling around with writing poetry for more years than I would like to face. She asked me to start pulling my book together. What book?! I thought to myself. But she had complete confidence in me, something I lacked when it came to my writing. With her help I did pull together my first book. Imagine my shock when it won a state book award. It would never have happened without Caroline.
You can find my review of her gorgeous poetry book Trapline here at Poetry on the Edge.

There are only a few spots left, so don’t delay if you want to take advantage!
From the site:
Here’s what happens when you join:
- Your experienced coach will reach out to you and schedule time to talk, to learn what you struggle with, and help you craft a set of concrete and achievable goals and a tailored practice plan to meet those goals.
- You will get access to a small, intimate support group of people working towards similar goals.
- Your coach will stick with you for the long-haul, making suggestions, sharing feedback, holding you accountable from day-to-day and week-to-week, and celebrating with you when you achieve your goals.
Meet the group coach
“I taught my first creative writing course in a Vancouver, BC public high school in 1994. After attending Stanford as a Wallace Stegner Fellow in poetry from 1999 – 2002, I began to teach at California College of the Arts and Stanford Continuing Studies. My areas of expertise are poetry and memoir; I have published four poetry chapbooks and one full-length collection. I love teaching and consider it a privilege to engage with my students’ creativity and the development of their individual voices. I am currently serving my community as the first Poet Laureate of San Mateo County, CA.”
If you end up working with Caroline, I can’t wait to hear about it. She’s a fabulous poetry teacher.
