Our workshops are made free and accessible to all participants, and come at no cost to our host organizations. We provide facilitators with an honorarium of $150 for every hour-long workshop and also cover costs of materials required for the workshop. Our workshops do not operate from a standardized poetry workshop model, but instead are designed specifically for each partner organization and their membership, centering creative expression and poetry. We encourage our facilitators to push the boundaries of what contemporary poetry is and can be and to represent that in their workshops, while remaining true to our mission of increasing literacy and literary awareness and fostering empowerment and community.
VSEAL donates copies of our magazine Vallum: Contemporary Poetry to each host organization after workshops are conducted.
We are not currently accepting applications to become a new Poetry for Our Future! facilitator.
