The title of this class has been updated from the print catalog.

All Levels | How do we make a poem more powerful without sacrificing its heart? By taking control of our choices! Each week we’ll dismantle a poem’s engine to find the intention in line breaks, word choice, stanza shape, “the speaker,” and more. We’ll study foundations of craft, reading masters like Greg Orr, Natasha Tretheway, Ross Gay, and Dorianne Laux. A supportive community and weekly writing and revision prompts will teach you all the rules, so you’ll know how to break them.
