Exploring Poetry with Kimberly Kruge


Wednesday, May 8, 2024 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. (EST). In this generative workshop-style class on writing your first poem, we’ll cover the basics of reading and writing poetry. We’ll discuss what a poem is and a few different common styles of poetry before performing a close reading of a piece as a group. Then, we’ll start drafting. Each participant will write a poem on their own and, in break-out sessions, receive feedback from a partner. There will be time for participants to make edits to their poems, and we’ll wrap with readings from anyone who wishes to share their work.
