Poetry & Prose (adults)
All Levels
Tuesdays, 7 to 9 p.m.
April 17 to May 22
with Laura McCullough

Whether you love poetry or prose, secretly write it, or just want to understand it better and explore your creativity, this is the place for you. We learn the language of “craft” and explore the relationship between inspiration and controlling effects such as image, metaphor, sonics, musicality, rhetorical strategies, lineation, and more to create poetry and prose that helps connect our inner voices to our readers. Each week we read a few contemporary pieces and discuss how they operate, have a craft talk, and work on generating new original writing of our own with inspiring prompts and guidance. Beginners to veteran writers are welcome, and sessions are geared to the interest and experience level of participants.
