“I am amazed by the amount I learned!” is what participants say about this popular class. This workshop is for writers looking to begin, or deepen, their exploration of poetry with a focus on craft. Each session is devoted to one aspect of craft (imagery, line, form, revision, etc.) and begins with a chance to share your work aloud. Participants learn by discussing great poems, reading short, engaging chapters, and doing fun weekly assignments. The instructor will give helpful and encouraging feedback on all poems created during the course. Please bring The Poet’s Companion by Addonizio and Laux to the first class. Note: No meeting on July 4.
