Odyssey: Poetry Writing: Inspiration and Craft

This is a workshop for writers of poetry at all levels who want to develop their skill and explore directions for further growth and possibilities for publishing. Assignments include suggestions for writing and related readings of poetry, as well as essays about creativity and craft. Coursework highlights subjects and sources of inspiration, such as memory, dream, powerful emotion, works of art, and language itself.

Participants bring drafts of poems to class each week for feedback. Discussion of technique, tradition, and expressiveness will emerge from close reading of each student's work.
