Have you written a scattering of poems that you'd like to weave into a compelling and impactful collection? Join us for an in depth journey that will empower you with the skills to curate and assemble your poems into one masterpiece. During this two-week class, we'll unearth a central theme that resonates throughout your body of work and learn how to tie poems together thematically, creating a captivating emotional journey for readers. We'll explore the art of structuring your collection to captivate your audience from start to finish, striking the perfect balance between unity and diversity. Participants can expect to leave the class with a draft of their collection and tips on how to go about getting it published, when the time comes. Writers of all levels and experience welcome!
