This class is built for the new poet, or for someone returning to poetry after some distance. Participants will have an opportunity to create new work from writing prompts and discuss different avenues into writing poetry. An overview of poetic tools, styles, and strategies will give way to the center of poetry: emotion, story, and breath. Participants will also gain an understanding of the workshop model and its alternatives, find ways to build their community of fellow creatives, and discuss how to stay self-motivated to keep writing.
El taller de creación literaria no-ficción se enfocará en la idea del “tiempo”: pasado, presente, y futuro. Los integrantes del taller serán guiados a realizar una serie de escritos que subrayaran discusiones de tiempo, punto de vista, y navegar lo personal o privado al lado de lo público.
