Creative Writing: Beginning Poetry

John Adams said a man should always carry a poet in his pocket. An online class to explore poetry’s power, pleasure, and, perhaps surprising, utility. Working with poems each participant brings to share, handouts, and guided exercises we’ll examine the challenges and strategies that make a poem a poem–before making our own. Enjoy poems by Lucille Clifton, Henri Cole, Adelia Prado, Kay Ryan, Tony Hoagland, many more.

Special notes:
This is an online class hosted through Zoom. We recommend that you download the free Zoom application on your computer, phone, or tablet in advance of the first class. You will receive a confirmation email containing a link to join the course via Zoom. The same link will be used each week.
