Course description

Course Description:

Over this ten-week course you will explore the world of poetry both reading poems from published poets and also creating your own poetry.

In class we will look at the poetry of published poets and through that find inspiration for our own writing. We will look at some technical aspects of poetry such as metaphors, similes, alliteration, line breaks, and imagery to improve our own writing.  During class we will experiment with different styles of poetry such as Haiku, prose poetry, ekphrastic poetry (engaging with a work of art), acrostic poetry (hidden messages) and free verse. You will also be encouraged to share your work with your fellow poets in class in our ‘Poet’s Corner’ and explore avenues to getting your poems published.

This course is also about having fun with language and finding your own voice. So, bring your paper and pens or laptop and start creating your own poetry.
