Classes

ONLINE: Writing Poetry

We’ll read and discuss poems written by other people, then write poems of our own, with special attention to elements of line, image and syntax. Students will learn how close readings of other poems may inspire their own work, and how they might read their own work with fresh eyes. Each meeting will include at least one writing exercise, to help generate at least four new poems. Students who wish to produce completed drafts should expect to continue writing outside of the scheduled class time.

Special Notes

  • Class time will focus on discussion of shared readings and our creative process. We will try to make time for writing exercises during class time, but students who wish to produce completed drafts should expect to continue writing outside of the scheduled class time. Students may want to plan for additional reading outside of class time, but it will not be a requirement.
  • Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
  • This class is held online through Zoom; learn more about how online classes work here
