Poetry I

Designed for any poet ready to take their poetry understanding to a new level, 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.

If the dates/time below does not work for you or you’d prefer a Wet Ink version of the course, check out this second offering of Poetry I.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
