Mondays and Wednesdays, 10/4/21 – 11/24/21 | 1:30 pm – 2:45 pm
This is a course for students with some experience conceiving and crafting poetic work, though you need not be published. We will refresh our writing practice through new sources of inspiration that help us break our writerly habits. To that end, we’ll explore various poetic prompts and nurture the development of a regular and mindful practice of writing. The course will include supportive discussion of our own works-in-progress, along with poems by published authors. Each student will receive written feedback from the instructor twice during the course.
