Word: The Poet’s Voice

This poetry course explores the writing craft needed to produce poems that deserve to be read. Students will study various themes: from nature writing to love poetry; spoken word and environmentally-themed poems; and works focused on capturing and expressing the female perspective. Students create and learn how to edit and revise their own poems and become skilled at analyzing the poetry of others. Various writing exercises allow each student to venture beyond their home to observe the world around them, record their observations, and channel what they see and experience directly into their poems.
