4-Week: By Heart—Seven More Essential Poems & Practices

$205.00 Members
$230.00 Non-members

Each week, we will 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 will 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 Lucille Clifton, John Donne, Louis Gluck and more. This is a generative and active class where you will absorb craft and make drafts rather than receive critiques. (Anxious learners: receive the seven poem list as soon as you sign up). New participants or returners welcome; we’ll be looking at an entirely new batch of poems.
