Poetry As Joy
Why take this mini-class?
This class was created to help you enjoy poetry. Often, we receive short, confusing messages about what a poem is or can be. In reality, poetry is fun to write, to read, and to understand. Seeing poetry as a playful process toward self-knowledge and wisdom is the key to understanding it. Be curious. Be playful. Be open-minded.
