Writing and Reading Poetry


Course description

If “a poem should not mean but be,” how can an aspiring poet catch and embed that being in a short, lyrical and rhythmic piece of writing that excites empathy and understanding?

The best, short lyrical poems often convey a moment in the time, space and experience of a unique persona and give utterance to a fleeting moment of grace. These events pass unnoticed in the daily grind, but sweeten and leaven our lives the way a flower or song make our journeys easier.

This introductory course offers a delicious selection of short poems in a workshop atmosphere where what we learn from other poets’ practices can be applied to our own writing. Students must be willing to show their work (anonymously) in the classroom setting, and you're invited to bring your own favourite poems to share with the class.
