All Levels | Join us for a class that focuses on revision strategies to help you flesh out, shape, and polish your draft poems. We’ll discuss key craft elements such as lineation and syntax, as well as ways to create and sustain tension. Poets should come to class with 5-8 draft poems that are ready for revision and be prepared to experiment with various approaches for bringing each to completion.
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.
