Poetry 101 with Kelly Fordon: On Zoom, Thursdays, February 11, 18, 25, March 4, 11, 18, 1pm-3pm. In this introductory class we will learn to write poetry by studying the basic tenets of the craft: imagery, line breaks, stanza, form, rhythm, meter, and narrative versus lyric poetry. We’ll write new poems and read work by established poets as well. This is a generative class. We will have opportunities to share our work, but the primary aim is to write new poems and learn the craft.
