In this class we will focus on creating a safe space to experiment and discover our voices as poets. Poetry can be a great way to express ourselves and help inspire change in others. We will look at different poems from Rudy Francisco, Andrea Gibson, and Bao Phi and break apart the text and learn how great poets created their work. We will write and share poems in class and receive written feedback from the instructor! This class is ideal for any young writer looking to expand upon (or discover) their craft.

This class is a double session class, meeting Saturday, 10/24 and Saturday, 10/31 from 1-2:30 p.m.
