$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

As the ultimate exercise in living by the word, we will submerge into the art of poetry and write a meditation, or ars poetica. Archibald Macleish’s poem ends: “A poem should not mean / But be.” In this class we’ll explore direct and indirect ways to write a poem about the nature of poetry. We’ll read examples by Thomas Lux, Marianne Moore, Terrance Hayes and others. By the end of class you will be clearer on your own concept of poetry and have some great draft lines or stanzas to return to this centuries-old theme.
