This seven-week course is designed to roam the pleasures of language that are the source of poetry.
You will experience the power of a primal verbal art to imaginatively transform your feelings and thoughts into a fresh creation. Guidance in following poetry’s history and craft will be offered; but you’ll also get the chance to strike out alone, producing your own work and receiving constructive feedback in a friendly, safe environment.
Beginners and more experienced writers/poets equally welcome. Come and explore!
