The goal of this class will be to introduce or reintroduce each member to the enjoyment of creating their own poems and the fundamental elements of poetry that go into doing so. We will discuss model poems, engage in guided writing exercises, and share work in a supportive environment. This class will be suitable for those looking to return to writing poetry after a hiatus or experienced poets who want to generate new work, but it will also be designed to welcome anyone who has not written poetry in the past but would like to explore and discover a new part of their creative life. Come join us!
