Poetry can often seem intimidating both as a reader and a writer. Wade into poetry with this class and become comfortable with their waters. In this class, we will discuss poetry as an art form, as well as what makes it different than other art forms. We’ll look at poetry from different angles to develop a greater appreciation of poetry as an art form. Whether you are new to poetry or well versed, this class will give you a new way to experience poetry and make it more approachable.
