Writing Poetry is a class open to all poets of all experience and skill levels. In this class, we are going to hone our writing skill and write a poem every day for a month, developing a chapbook-length work. We’ll be doing a good deal of workshopping and revision, and we’ll focus a little on publishing your work too! This is an encouraging class where we will treat your work with the respect it deserves and help you get where you want to be as a poet.
