With Marguerite Floyd.

This class addresses how to become a poet and what it means. We will write and read contemporary poetry, give constructive feedback to one another, and develop a poet’s notebook. As beginning poets, we do not focus on publishing. Rather, we focus on getting our poems to be the best they can be. We also learn the value of rewriting and writing every day. [BEGINNING]
