Poetry II will build on the foundation of Poetry I and explore poetic structure and craft in more detail. We'll closely read and discuss example texts by Audre Lorde, Quincy Troupe, Chen Chen, Anastacia Reneé, and Andrea Gibson. We will generate new writing from prompts and develop the art of revision by responding to each other's work in a supportive environment, and you will leave the class with tools to continue to refine your work.
Payment plans are available for this class. Please email email@example.com to get a payment plan started.
