8-Week: Online Poetry Workshop

Description:

This workshop focuses on your poems—writing them, reading them, listening to them, and discussing them. Every week we’ll take a close look at a few participant poems in the middle stages of composition. At the same time, we’ll read some old and new published poems for hints as to how they tick. Most importantly, perhaps, we’ll write new poems or pre-poems using exercises as a starting point. Throughout, we’ll discuss and think about what a poem might be (rather than what it should be), how we might approach writing them, and why we write and read them. Join us at any stage in your exploration of poetry.

About Online Classes with Lighthouse
 
Our online classes are designed to be flexible. There is no set meeting date or time, so students can log in to participate whenever and wherever is convenient. Generally the instructor will post new material—such as readings, discussion questions, and writing prompts—on Mondays and students can post their responses to ongoing discussion feeds throughout the week.

On the Monday that class starts, we'll send instructions on how to log into their specific online class.
