About the Event

$200 PER PERSON. MAX 12

It is the work of a poet to be a “seer” of things—a conduit of evocative image and meaning. In this 8 week course we will explore how to adopt a poetic awareness of irony, and metaphor, experiment with ways to describe how we see the world. Through engaging and interactive workshops participants will read and write with a curiosity around how poems are built. In the tradition of free verse, students will learn about poetry mechanics, develop an ear for poetic language, and image in this powerful form of self-expression.

This class will improve a poet's understanding of the craft.

A workshop is a dialogue, a collaboration in which a writer and readers, including a teacher, work as a team to guide the writer’s work toward the fullest expression of itself. With constructive insight and guidance from a teacher, and in a supportive environment, students are encouraged to give thoughtful, commentary on a peer's work in exchange for the same.
