Finding Your Poetic Voice with Amy Holman (via Zoom)
January 14 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$370
In this 6-week workshop, we will delve into the images, diction, structures, abstractions, symbolism and other considerations that interest poets when they write. Through individual and group prompts, and by paying attention to the work of other poets, Amy Holman will help students to follow their curiosities and interests to develop their own poetic voices. This workshop could be useful to new and emerging poets. Please be prepared to share a poem in the first class.
This class will take place via Zoom. Zoom link will be emailed at the time of registration. Please write to [email protected] with any questions.
Class will meet for 6 Thursdays, from 6:30-9:00 pm, between January 14-February 18, 2021.
