There's No "I" in Poetry: Exploring Creative Ways to Begin a Poem

With: 
Kelly Harris-DeBerry

Starting a poem can be challenging. Too often a writer enters a poem in the same eye-witnessing way, using "I" to begin. This is often a trap in identity-themed poems.

Getting out of our own way can give a poem room to find its way. This class will provide you with different strategies for beginning a poem and provide examples of poems with great entry lines.
