Course Description

IN PERSON: Enjoy the process of creating poetry! We’ll use writing prompts to get the creative process going. Emphasis will be on creating vivid imagery, shaping stanzas and honing the story or message of the poem. The class structure will include the distribution of in-class writing prompts for free verse poems with time allowed to share what you’ve written. Once students have settled on several poems to focus on, we will share feedback. Learning to read and critique a poem is a skill that benefits the writer. Ideally, poems will be shared via email to give everyone a chance to review them and be prepared to discuss them. The goal is to give constructive criticism and encourage each other. By the end of the course, students will have a solid collection of poems. | Facilitated discussion, Active Skill Learning.
