ClassPoetry for Everyone: Beginning Poetry
Listening to, sharing, reading, and writing poems is our birthright as human beings. Other species with whom we share this planetary home also make poems, songs, patterns, beauty for the sake of claiming space, connection, communication, courtship, and attachment.
In this class, we will cover the essentials of poetry in a fun and adventurous way, focusing on pleasure, play, and delight in language and the forms of poetry. We will read and discuss amazing poems together; consider issues of consciousness, history, voice, and power; learn about craft; write from prompts; and share our work as desire and time allows.
