Intermediate/Advanced | For poets working in so-called free verse, the shape of a poem is a question that must be asked with every new piece. In this class, we’ll explore techniques for finding and working with free-verse form. What are the effects of each of our choices? Bring three poems in progress; we’ll use discussion, reading, and formal play to explore which form each poem wants to take.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
