Improve your writing by reading exciting poets! If you're a beginning reader of poetry or an already practicing poet, come discover the secrets of poetic form, metaphor, imagery, rhythm, and much more by looking deeply into the works of a wide range of poets – from Shakespeare and the classics to the best international, American, and LA poets—such as Kaveh Akbar, Nick Laird, Elizabeth Bishop, Lucille Clifton, Charles Bukowski, Wallace Stevens, Stevie Smith, John Ashber, Pablo Neruda and Wanda Coleman.
We'll discuss formal, free verse, and/or experimental poems, depending on the interests of class members. In a supportive setting, take part in reading and writing exercises that will deepen your appreciation of poetry and further your own work.
