Poetry I: The Craft of Poetry

In this 6-week online workshop you will find inspiration, play, experiment with new forms and generative exercises, explore the craft of poetry, create and edit new work, and share and receive feedback, support, and encouragement in a relaxed, intimate environment.

We will meet as a group via Zoom each week for lectures and workshopping. Lessons, assignments, and reading materials will be posted online. Students will write new poems weekly for discussion.

This class is open to all levels of writers and all styles of poetry. Whether you’re already a published poet or a you’ve never written a poem, this is an opportunity to establish, re-establish, or deepen your writing practice, find your way onto the page, learn new techniques and forms, and connect to a thriving local writing community.
