Class Experience

Are you a budding poet who wants to practice your art? Are you hoping to bring your poems to life? 

In this one-week workshop, students will work on new poems, and then practice reading with expression, energy, and heart. During the week we’ll study contemporary poems, specifically discussing the elements of poetry (line breaks, voice, meter, rhyme, and more!) as well as the relationship between form and content. Writing prompts will help students begin writing, and our fabulous teaching artists will give students the opportunity to practice bringing these new poems to life.
