About the Event

Ages 16+

Tuesdays from 7-8:30 PM starting Sept. 7th and ending Nov 16th

This course introduces poetry to students through concepts and strategies designed to help them understand how poetry communicates to people. Nikki Giovanni’s says that, “Writers write from empathy” and we’ll be engaging with our own emotions to connect to ourselves as well as to others in writing our poetry. Every effort will be made to create a space for each student to safely share their thoughts, feelings, and words with other members of our class.
