Poetry in Practice

This course is designed for all writers interested in beginning, developing, or deepening a poetry practice. Wherever we are in our writing, having a commitment to read and write in a community can be transformative for our process. Through this eight-week course, we will explore and review a range of poetry fundamentals, forms, and techniques with the goal of developing a deeper engagement with the art of poetry. We will practice various approaches to writing and revising our own poems while reading widely to challenge our understanding of poetry. This course will provide weekly readings and writing assignments, discussions on topics of poetry, and opportunities for sharing our work. This is appropriate as a follow-on course for those who took previously took Poetry in Practice, offering new content for extending your study. This twelve hour Continuing Education course fulfills 1.2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
