Celebrate and observe the natural world, see and hear what others have written about it and write new poems inspired by your experiences. We’ll read poems, create new work, and engage in readings and discussions.
- All course readings will be provided by the instructor. Students may wish to purchase a notebook/sketchbook for collecting ideas and writing drafts of their poems.
