Course Description

It has been said that great poets steal. We will be generating new poems by taking cues from wonderful poems as inspiration. We will explore and discuss a selected poem, then stretch our poetry muscles doing some in-class warm-ups and sharing what we have written. At home during the week, you can write or start writing poems inspired by the model poem. The next week, we will share our creations, exploring new ways to hone your poem. One week we may explore the limerick or the deep image poem, another week work off a line contained in a famous poem. We will explore both form poems and free verse in hopes of generating poems that have delighted you in the process of writing them and made you proud to have created them. New and experienced poets are welcome in this course.    Active ParticipationFacilitated Discussion Writing
