 Maybe you loved reading Robert Frost in middle school but haven’t had the opportunity to read much poetry since then? In this course, we’ll read contemporary, accessible poems and discuss the fundamental elements of poetry that make them effective—from sounds, line breaks, images, and language. Writers will participate in creative writing warm-up exercises with the option of sharing. We’ll talk about what makes a poem a poem and what separates the good from the bad. This is a great course for those new to poetry or artists of other genres or art forms who’d like to incorporate elements of poetry into their craft.
