Forms of Poetry

All Levels | Each week students will read, write, and discuss a different poetic form. In an effort to embody each form, students will also select a short poem from the readings each week to memorize and recite at the following class. Forms will be both traditional and experimental and may include: the sonnet, the pantoum, the haiku, lipogram, nonce, and others.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
