This class is all about play and possibility. Together we will explore different ways of getting into the first draft of a poem through a variety of methods, traditional forms, invented forms, practices, and rituals. Class sessions will be focused on experimenting with form and process, writing and editing new drafts, and reading work from innovative contemporary poets. This class is designed for teens who are new to writing poetry and for those looking to deepen their work as poets.
