What makes a poem come alive? What gives it emotional resonance, energy, and depth? How do we transform the raw material of our lives—our observations, memories, insights, dreams—into compelling poems that lure in a reader? In this class, we’ll dive into these questions, drawing inspiration from a diverse array of writers as we investigate the craft elements (metaphor, image, syntax, sound, etc) that make a poem vibrate with feeling and energy. And we’ll dive into our own work, immersing ourselves in our creative processes to find new doorways into ourselves and our poems. Whether you’re new to poetry or have been writing for years, this class will provide you with a supportive, inspiring environment in which to explore. | Maximum: 12 writers.
