I am teaching a poetry class at Seattle Central Community College Continuing Education, September 29 - November 17. The Life of a Poem.
The life of a poem begins with the freedom to write and journeys through revision and performance. A poet also breathes life into his or her work by reading a world of poetry and studying craft. In this class, students will develop their own poetic craft and work toward writing the best poems they can write. The class will study a diverse set of poems; analyze craft; perform writing exercises; critique work in a thoughtful and compassionate environment; revise; and learn performance techniques.
