In this class, participants will use imagery as inspiration for poetry.

Together, we will  look at several images, and write poems together, exploring the thoughts and emotions we feel when we look at the images. Whether the poets in this class are lifelong writers or just beginning, we will all share the joy of words with each other. At the end of class, we will perform our poems out loud.

Paper and pen provided.
