Intro to Poetry

Have you always wanted to write a poem or composed a few and want to know how to improve them? Then this class is for you. It will cover the elements of poetry: sound and rhythm, images and metaphor, speakers, and the shapes of poems. There will be weekly reading and writing assignments, along with in-class discussions and critiques of your poems.

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.
