Poetry I will introduce or re-introduce you to poems from many different eras — we’ll read Walt Whitman, Robert Hayden, Natasha Trethewey, and Joy Harjo, among many others — while providing a rich foundation for writing new poems. We’ll explore and practice many essential elements of poetry, including image, metaphor, sound, line breaks, and overall form.
This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be completed at your own pace throughout the week.
If the dates below do not work for you or you’d prefer a ZOOM version of the course, check out this second offering of Poetry I.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
