Teens 13-18 are invited to learn, write, and share poetry with Michigan poet and teacher Jade Driscoll! No previous experience with poetry is needed; just come in with a good attitude and the desire to create with words!
This class will introduce students to different elements that comprise the craft of poetry. We will discuss and experiment with figurative language, rhyme, repetition, persona, and stanza/line lengths; we will also talk about the process of revision and how to read your poems to an audience.
The final session of the class will include a reading where students can virtually share their favorite poems they wrote during class with the community. Additionally, at this final session, students will receive a printed chapbook of poems they wrote throughout the class!
This 6-week virtual class takes place via zoom, 6-7 pm Thursdays, January 20-February 24. Students will receive a Zoom link via email.
