Poetry Writing with Mary Swander: Online Class

How do you process life’s beauty & struggle? Join us for an online poetry writing class with nationally acclaimed poet Mary Swander. June 13, 2020. 3:00-4:30pm. $28.

In this workshop, Mary Swander will explore two core components of poetry: imagery and metaphor. We’ll ask: How do these figures of speech engage the reader from the beginning, hold her attention throughout, and transform the meaning of the poem? We’ll write short individual poems in class to practice precision and control. Come prepared to be inspired to have better control in your poetry and at the same time, enjoy the fun of projecting your imagination onto the page.
