  A poetry workshop should be a safe and sacred place where poets can explore deep emotion and thought. However, if you are seeking a poetry workshop that will simply praise your work, this class is not for you. Our time together will explore your poetry, the poems of other students in the workshop, and the works of masters. For each class, students must bring enough copies of their poems to share with everyone; the workshop will begin with a poetry reading of all poems. We will then work through each poem one-by-one, focusing on understanding what each poet is trying to accomplish. Although students are expected to write at least one original poem for each workshop, do not avoid coming to class because you have not written one. You may learn more about writing by listening to the constructive criticism of other students’ work; and hearing their poems may inspire you in a way that sitting alone with your thoughts may not. Unpublished poets: information available about best submission practices. Class is designed for adults.
