Poetry Writing with instructor: Jenny Robertson.
How do we write about emotion without being sappy? How do we make our thoughts and visions clear to others? In this class we look at the work of contemporary and historical poets, gathering an awareness of craft and collecting techniques we can put to use in our own writing.
Are there ways we can deepen our observations of the world and surprise even ourselves with the words, images and associations that arise? We'll free-write during each class, using prompts and writing exercises to generate new ideas. There is also an opportunity to workshop your new poems with other supportive and passionate writers. Bring a notebook and your favorite writing utensil.
This class is a series of 8 weeks on Wed., Apr. 3-May 22, 6-7:30pm.
$160 Member; $170 non member.
