Create & Define: Poetry Workshops
Join us for a 4-week course exploring the genre of poetry. The first two classes will be focused on generating poems, while the last two will hone in on editing.
Find your voice as you create and define your own lines and lyrics. We'll work on meter, language choice, rhyme, and composition as we put our ideas and feelings to the page.
