Find your poetic courage.
Are you committed to the craft of writing poetry and yearning to set goals? In this class, we concentrate on a different poet each week, analyzing and discussing craft points and elements. The richness of our discovery—of language and the more nuanced poetic elements—enlivens our experience of the poet, the craft, and our response to both. We then respond to related prompts through our writing, strengthening our own creative abilities. The goal is to produce work that moves you to a new understanding of your obsessions and talents as a writer. In addition to generating writing, you also respond respectfully to one another’s work, creating a supportive writing community.

“I adore the class and how it has lifted me up as a poet. And all with kindness and honesty. It’s refreshing!”
Meet Your Instructor: Laura Cyphers
“This class has grown into a practice, a meditation, and a sacred place for us all. I am committed to the craft and to these wonderful poets/writers who show up, do all the hard inner work, and produce these magnificent poems. We all bring our best selves to this class—our knowledge, our experience, and our kindness. We find that our capacity to human better comes from our courage to write poems and to share them.”

Our organization was founded to help amplify the voices of those who are often not heard—including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQIA+ individuals, and other historically marginalized groups. We have witnessed how writing and sharing stories has the power to effect change by generating greater love, compassion, and empathy in the listener. In all of our programs, we provide an inclusive, supportive, and welcoming environment. We do not tolerate writing that perpetuates harmful stereotypes or fuels hate. Failure to align with our philosophy can result in your removal from class.
