We will read and discuss the writings of famous poets, using their works as well as our own experiences as prompts to create our own poetry. We will also use topics that emerge organically in group discussion as prompts for our writing. We will have directed free writing during class time that will enable us to create specific poems that we will share from week to week. We will provide helpful criticism for each other's poetry as we try to improve our writing skills.
Supplies: Paper and Pen/pencil
Registration Required. Zoom link will be sent to those who registered by 10am the morning of the program.
