Reading fine poetry often sparks new poems of your own. Find inspiration for new poems and revise old ones. Gain feedback on your work from kindred spirits who enjoy reading, writing, and responding to poetry. We will read selections from Wendell Berry, Elizabeth Bishop, Lucille Clifton, Langston Hughes, and Galway Kinnell. The only requirement for this class is a love of poetry.
