Unique Takes on Ageless Themes: Generative Poetry Workshop

Unique Takes on Ageless Themes: Generative Poetry Workshop

from 53.00

Birth, Death, Love, and Loss: these four themes touch all of our lives. Countless poems have been written about them and yet they refuse to give up their mysteries. In addition to reading unique poems on these universal issues, you'll draft and share your own in class. This class is suited for those new to poetry or those who want to get back into the poetry habit. We'll end with a discussion of writing rituals and routines, so you'll leave with new poems and plans to make poetry part of your life.
