Finding the Poem – Fall 2022

Reading fine poetry often sparks new poems of your own. Find inspiration, share your work, and gain feedback from others who enjoy reading, writing, and responding to poetry. Poems by Galway Kinnell, Wendell Berry, Hans Ostrom, Langston Hughes, Elizabeth Bishop, and Lucille Clifton will be read. Join this class and be inspired by these favorite American poets.

Barbara Alfaro is a Carnegie Center Author Academy mentor and the award-winning author of Mirror Talk, a memoir, Theatre Mad, a collection of comedies, and Catbird, a book of poems.

This class is suitable for all levels.
