Class Description:

Do you love to write poetry? Do you crave support and inspiration? Are you ready to share your work and receive feedback? Do you need deadlines to make you sit down and write? This class is for you! Join us in the writer’s studio for a study of craft and creativity! We’ll dive into our most vulnerable selves and elicit our reader’s emotions with fresh metaphorical leaps, clear imagery, artful pacing, and effective syntax. We’ll edit and revise our poems in small group writing workshops, and you’ll receive constructive responses to your work. You’ll find a whole community of poets here ready to support and nurture you. Join us!
