Poetry III assumes a foundation of craft and elements of poetry; from here we'll practice generative writing exercises to produce new poems by examining the language of contemporary poets. Students will participate in a supportive workshop in which their work is appreciated for what it is and creatively encouraged to grow. You'll learn how to heighten the resonance in each poem you present, how to make conflicting elements work together to bring out the themes, and how to support yourself as you write and revise to make your best poems.

To help provide financial accessibility to our class offerings, some classes each quarter are offered with a sliding-scale tuition model, allowing students to pay what they can for the class. For these classes, tuition increments starting at $5 and going up to 125% of the standard pricing will be listed on the page.

Hugo House will only process refund requests that are submitted 5 business days or more before the class start date.
