Turning Life Experience into Poetry – Spring 2021

Whether it is Robert Frost’s walk through the woods on a snowy evening or Billy Collins’ creation of a lanyard at camp, specific events often serve as an anchor for poems that capture the mystery, majesty, and humor of life. In this seminar, we’ll examine several poems that use specific experiences to bring the reader to universal conclusions and help you create your own. For all levels.

Ellen Birkett Morris is the Pushcart Prize-nominated author of Lost Girls: Short Stories and Surrender (Finishing Line Press).
