Class Description

Whether you're looking to generate new and different poems, revise or transform previous work, or develop a theme or chapbook, this workshop will help you deepen your craft and write authentic, original poems. We will look at poems by Terrance Hayes, Tracy K. Smith, Tommy Pico, Natasha Trethaway, Ross Gay and Ada Limon as instructive models for both form and content. We will provide a supportive audience for each others’ new poems each week, as well as exploring with in-class writing activities. Plan on leaving the course with both fresh and revised drafts of many poems.

This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
