With Bonnie Shand, Poet

What motivates poets to write and others to read poetry? Sadly, poetry is rarely a lucrative occupation, and only a small percentage of the population chooses to read it. This class is meant for those who write it, those who read it, and those who are curious about the reasons poetry exists. We will ponder the mysteries and gifts of this art form and share our reasons for being called to it. This is not a writing class, but poets can read examples of their work, and all students can share favorite poems.

THIS CLASS HAS BEEN CANCELED.
