Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced poet, this class is designed to get you inspired and writing, exploring new styles, learning new tools, and expanding your creative palette, while sharpening your expressive skills.
We cover the foundational elements of the art and craft of poetry, focusing on one element per week in depth. We draw on masterful examples from a wide range of poets, discover a host of poetic techniques, and practice skills and approaches to expand your writing from wherever you are starting.
These tools are excellent for writers of all kinds and at all levels of experience.
In a safe, supportive environment, we draw forth your unique voice and art. You’ll write six new poems, drawing from inspiring examples and prompts and learn tools of revision to make your poems shine, while enjoying camaraderie with other creative souls.
Many poets in my classes also discover lasting creative friendships with others in the group.
Give yourself a break from the stresses of our world. Let your creativity come forth and be nurtured. Get inspired. Learn to ride the dragon of poetry!
