Beginning this October, we’ve got great courses to keep your writing on track …
An 8-week poetry workshop with award-winning poet Donna Stonecipher, PhD, author of four books of poetry and one of prose. This class will consist of two components: a discussion-based exploration of poetry, and a workshop. In addition to writing weekly exercises given by Donna, participants will submit their own poems on a rotating schedule and receive constructive feedback from everyone in an informal and supportive workshop setting. Writing comes from reading, so we will also spend time reading others’ poems together and articulating why and how they work. The workshop is appropriate for writers at all levels of experience, from beginners to professionals.
