Description

Explore the world of verse by learning to read poems with the eyes (and ears, nose, heart, and lungs) of a poet, and come away understanding what you missed in high school and college lit classes. Prose writers will gain a deeper appreciation of poetry and some inspiration—for ways to integrate poetic devices into their prose and to try out poetry for themselves. Poets will find their poetic vision sharpened and their founts replenished, and will be challenged to try some new creations. This class meets on two Tuesdays, March 22 and 29, 2022, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
