Seattle Poets Respond

It is difficult / to get the news from poems / yet men die miserably every day for lack / of what is found there. — from Asphodel, That Greeny Flower by William Carlos Williams

All Levels | Yes, the headlines have always been maddening. In this generative poetry workshop, we will attempt to grapple with the weekly news by exploring prompts and techniques that offer the poet a chance to craft a response to an increasingly complex world. Every week, students will be encouraged to submit their poems.
