Poetry II

This class will build upon craft learned in Poetry I. Through more intensive readings, prompts, discussions, and workshops of your poems, we will further develop our poetic technique. While Poetry I is aimed at introducing you to the vast creative toolbox available to any poet, the goal of Poetry II is to explore in more detail those craft elements that are most often at play in your own growing body of work.
