This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
Introductory/Intermediate | Students will generate 4-6 new poems, participate in workshop, and submit work to a literary journal for publication. We’ll read and write in response to a wide array of contemporary poets, becoming familiar along the way with the literary journals to which we aspire. Poets we read include Jericho Brown, Franny Choi, and Solmaz Sharif. All will finish the class by sending at least one submission, which will include a new, strong cover letter.
