Poems of Praise [Kevin Young]

In this intensive course, we will invigorate our poems and our writing lives with a focus on the everyday and the extraordinary, from food to loss. Students will write toward odes to everyday things in the spirit of Neruda and Lucille Clifton; we will also address poems to lost places and people, as a way of finding voices and tones that are our own. The result is less a poetry workshop than a lab for living.
