4-Week: By Heart—Seven Essential Poems and Practices

$205.00 Members
$230.00 Non-members

Each week, we'll take poems into our bodies through learning them by heart. Then, we will then share them by recitation and performance. But most importantly, by living with great poems day by day, we'll explore and be inspired by master poets of exceptional craft. Exercises, experiments, and your own poems will follow. In a practice shared by Jean Valentine, Robert Pinsky, and others, learning poems by heart will make you a better poet. Learn poems by Emily Dickinson, Philip Larkin, and Robert Hayden. This is a generative and active class where you'll absorb craft and make drafts rather than receive critiques. (Anxious learners: You'll receive the seven poem list as soon as you sign up.)

Please Note: This is not a traditional workshop with formal critiques, though there may be opportunities for informal sharing. If you’d like your work critiqued in depth, please see the 8-week workshop listings.
