8-Week: Intermediate Poetry Workshop

October 22, 2023

Clear, effective teaching within a fun, informative environment. I got a lot out of the materials from marginalized writers I had never been introduced to before. I gained a lot of insight from my workshop, and also from workshopping the other writers in class. André quickly became one of my favorite instructors from Lighthouse!
