This class is for people who write, used to write, or would like to write poetry. There is some review of (or introduction to) a variety of poetic forms and techniques from various periods and cultural traditions, as well as relationships between poetry and other arts (including appeals to the ear or eye). These are designed to prompt new writing challenges for participants. The heart of the class is writing, reading and discussion of our own poetry. Writers share copies with the class, and receive respectful feedback.
