We don’t need to wait for “special” experiences in order to write poems. Beautiful, resonant poetry can—and so often does—spring from our everyday lives: the objects we live with and love, the more-than-human beings we encounter in our backyards or neighborhoods. In this class, we’ll explore poems, and poem-making, based in the ordinary and daily. We’ll read work by contemporary poets including Jane Hirshfield, Li-Young Lee, Ada Limón, and Naomi Shihab Nye, and we’ll participate in writing exercises designed to help us see our everyday worlds as enduring, expansive sources for our poems.

Class meets in person Tuesday, October 1, 10 am – noon.

Class size: Minimum 5. Maximum 12.
