Poetry Writers Workshop
This course will encourage students to write by looking at a variety of contemporary poets and make connections with poets throughout the ages. We will look at how a poem means what it says, and explore hearing and reading the work out loud. Students will develop skills for critical thinking and deeper understanding for their own writing and the work of others. We will examine how poetry is as relevant in these times as ever before.
