  A poetry workshop should be a safe and sacred place where poets can explore deep emotion and thought in their work. However, if you are seeking a workshop that will simply praise your poems, this class is not for you. Our workshop will involve a deep exploration of your poetry, and we will share great poems of the past century. To begin each class, students will bring enough copies of their poems to share with everyone, and the workshop will begin with a poetry reading of all poems submitted. We then will work through each poem one-by-one, with a focus on understanding each poet’s artistic intentions. 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 your writing by listening to the constructive criticism of another students’ work; and hearing other students’ poems may inspire you in a way that sitting alone with your thoughts may not. For poets who are unpublished, information will be shared concerning best submission practices. Class is designed for adults.
