Stuck in a poetry rut? Get excited about the physical world around us, and the ways that world can manifest in your writing. We’ll use a trio of themes—animals, travel, and food—to spark poems full of bright imagery and strong verbs. The class will feature close reading and craft discussion of exemplar poems, as well as guided prompts for post-workshop writing. Students may bring in two drafts of their choosing for in-class critique. Three Fridays: October 4, 11, 18 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Sandra Beasley is the author of three poetry collections, including Count the Waves (W.W.
