Description

This series of structured workshops will benefit poets who are interested in honing their craft and working towards publishing their work. Each class is designed to challenge poets through group discussions and teaching prompts based on the following poetry tools: figurative language, tilting, pacing, revision, ekphrastic poetry, rhyme, meter, form, and aural devices. Students of all writing levels are welcome to experience the individualized attention and critiquing that the workshops provide.

Covid Protocols: Classes and workshops held in all spaces at the art center and Whole World Arts utilize an HVAC system supplemented with portable HEPA filtration systems. Fresh air is introduced whenever possible. Classes are spaced appropriately to allow 3 - 6 ft. of social distancing. Acrylic barriers are utilized, as needed. Mask wearing is strongly encouraged for all adults regardless of vaccination status, and required for all youth classes. All our staff and Teaching Artists have been vaccinated. High-touch surfaces are wiped down regularly using certified cleaning agents. Hand sanitizer is available in all classrooms. Youth visual arts classes have their own sanitized art supplies to be used.
