Try your hand at reading and writing poetry! This interactive workshop is designed for writers of all backgrounds. Students will explore poetry through written text, spoken word and collaborative workshop. Reading and writing poetry can serve as a creative outlet, therapeutic activity, and/or literary art. You will explore poetic texts from a craft-based perspective and draft your own poems using guided prompts. This class provides concrete tools for a generative, integrated poetic reading and writing practice. All you need is paper and a pencil!
