Poems for a Cause

All Levels | Why give a speech at the protest rally when you could speak a poem, witness through lyric lines, testify with an urgent blessing, or teach an anthem all can sing together? Or maybe the poems you write out of love for your cause are quietly handed to friends and strangers, slipped into pockets to change hearts and lift spirits. We will savor stirring texts, then write our own — for earth, for justice, for kindness and compassion. This class includes a one-hour lunch break.

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.
