This compact class will cover the basics of writing a poem from start to finish. Topics covered include kick-starting your inspiration, basic elements in poetic writing (metaphor, imagery, rhythm...), and approaches to editing. Participants will have a chance to practice noticing exercises and isolating memories, as well as consider poetry of place, and will take part in writing exercises.
