Writing Poetry: Matter of Life and Verse (P20)

Tuesdays, April 14-May 19, 6-8 PM 
Instructor: Michael Metivier

"Tell all the truth," wrote Emily Dickinson, "but tell it slant." Poetry, through wordplay and its various forms, allows us to experiment artfully with the matter of life - our loves and losses, fears and dreams and every mundane thing in between - so as to give it better resonance, a heightened urgency, and a timeless quality. In this class, our reading and discussion of good poems will frame in-class writing exercises and the creation and sharing of our own good poems.
