Poetry III: Contemporary Poets and Poetry
This brand new six-week workshop will explore the craft of poetry through the lens of established contemporary poets.
Each week will focus on a different poet using deep discussion of their work as inspiration for poetic experimentation. The poets we will study are: Kaveh Akbar, Ada Limón, Natalie Diaz, Ilya Kaminsky, Kim Addonizio, and Mathew Zapruder.
The class will include generative writing prompts, close readings of poems, and generous feedback and attention in a relaxed, supportive online environment. All levels welcome.
