Have you ever said ‘I don’t even like poetry’? When you were forced to read poetry in school did it never seem to make sense to you? Have you ever said ‘I can’t write poetry’? Then this is the class for you. We’ll make sense of this strange world of poetry. Each class will provide writing time and we’ll read from a variety of poets who do make sense. Who knows, you may even join the ranks of poetry lovers.
