Draft new poems in a class designed to kick your writing into gear. Each week we'll share our writing, find inspiration in published poems, and respond to in-class exercises to get going on the next piece. Throughout the class we'll discuss craft, experiment with new poetic forms, play with language and line breaks, and find out what sparks our process.
This class takes place remotely online via Zoom.
