Looking for interesting discussions about poetry to inspire your own writing? Join us as we explore and enjoy Tracy K. Smith’s Wade in the Water. We’ll discuss the book as a whole, as well as spend more concentrated time on individual poems. Participants will receive weekly writing prompts based on the book’s poems and themes and the instructor will give helpful feedback on your work. When class is over, you will have a good sense of how a poetry book work, a solid sense of Smith’s particular style, and some new work of your own. Bring a copy of Wade in the Water to the first class.
