    Always Beginning: Writing Poems

    With Leatha Kendrick. What makes a poem matter? How can we reach past what we think we are able to say? Through a focused exploration of craft and through generating new work together, we will attempt the poems we are not able to write. Reading poetry--the great and the new--we will expand our sense of what is possible. Limit: 10 participants [ALL LEVELS] Register NOW for Always Beginning: Writing Poems.
