In a time of worldwide strife and disconnection, poetry reacquaints us with humanity in a way that transcends borders, time zones, and languages. Join master poetry teacher Veronica Golos on an international poetry tour. First stop: Latin America!

In this four-week generative poetry workshop we will explore four international poets: Conceiҫão Evaristo (Brazil), Coral Bracho (Mexico), Pablo Neruda (Chile) and Juan Gelman (Argentina). Each week we will read deeply, explore each poet’s craft tools, and apply these techniques to our own work. A packet with poems will be sent to participants, along with suggestions for developing your own work.

This class is open to writers of all skill levels 18+.

By the end of the class students will have:

  • Study and analyze the work of 4 contemporary poets
  • Write poems that follow the selected poet’s structure and theme
  • Receive on-the-spot feedback for written work
