Course Description

"No ideas but in things."—William Carlos Williams. Poets through the centuries have created their own unique voices. Poetry expresses both simple and complex things through image, metaphor, tone, style, rhythm, sound, and more. The best poets go against the grain—they turn what is common on its head and stand out from the crowd by paying careful attention to word, line, form, image, and the other elements that enrich poetry. The course will encourage poets to expand their voices to become more fearless. Using a workshop-style setting, the class members will discuss each other's poetry as well as share examples of the poems they each read and enjoy. The course will examine craft, the poetry rewriting and self-editing process, as well as how to prepare a manuscript and how and where to publish. The course is open to all levels of experience. The goal is to have fun, share ideas, and learn together. Facilitated Discussion Writing
