Intro to Poetry Writing

This is a beginner’s class for those interested in writing poems. Previous experience with poetry isn’t required, although all levels are welcome. Part seminar, part workshop. We’ll discuss the foundations of poetry — line, metaphor, image, sound, etc., through reading and discussion. We’ll examine poems by Jean Follain, Karl Krolow, William Meredith, W.S. Merwin, and Denise Levertov, among others, and write and share new poems based on this engagement.

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

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
