Poems that Connect Us [Cody Pherigo]

All Levels | In this generative class, we’ll look at human-centric, or what I like think of as “social,” poems: opinionated; curious; and concerned with human connection, potential, and prosperity. The class mimics speed dating: we’ll read and discuss an eclectic range of social poetry styles, then practice writing in that style. Poems will carry some or all of these characteristics: conversational, political, intimate, and slam. We’ll study poems by Kim Addonizio, Nikky Finney, Denice Frohman, Andrea Gibson, Joy Harjo, and Ross Gay.
