ONLINE Poetry Basics 2
Prerequisite: Poetry Basics 1.
So you’re one who did 1… good for you! Whether Poetry Basics 1 was your first time learning about and writing poetry, or you took it for a refresher, in Poetry Basics 2, we’ll take it all to the next level. Similar to Creative Basics 2, we’ll combine learning, weekly readings, and peer workshopping (which we’ll learn to do, gently and effectively) to learn more, understand more, and polish our work, all while gaining confidence in our poetic knowledge and abilities. Ready to level up? You can do it; we believe in you! Spaces are limited to ten poets.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
