With Sarah McCartt-Jackson. Participants will examine how prose and poetry interact by reading essays by renowned poets, dealing with different elements of craft and poetic contemplation each week. Then we compare their thoughts to their work. Each week, we find inspiration through generative writing prompts. Register now for Prosetry: Prose & Poetry.
With Angel C. Dye. Practice honing your interest and skills in the art of poetry writing in this fun, relaxed workshop. Each week writers of all levels will challenge themselves by experimenting with different poetic forms and leave with drafts for further composition. Some possible forms to be explored include the haiku, tanka, sonnet, “Where I’m From,” and gigan. Register now for Poetry 101 (Spring).
With Jeff Worley. Spend some time in a workshop setting writing new poems, revising old ones, and sharing your work with others in class. We will work on the basic stuff of poetry: imagery, the use of sound to fortify meaning, lineation, and various approaches to formal structure, as well as the free-verse poem. We'll support each other to improve drafts of poems and discuss various aspects of the contemporary poem. Register now for Writing Poetry (Spring).
