Online Poetry Class — Triggering Poetic Inspiration

Where do poem ideas come from? Finding a way to sustain poetry writing beyond those first emotion-driven poems that we just have to write is often the challenge facing poets who have been writing for awhile. Using Richard Hugo’s The Triggering Town as inspiration, poets will come out of this class with eight new poems, as well as some new tools for generating inspiration and ideas.

Triggering Poetic Inspiration (8 weeks):

January 11-March 4, 2021— $280

Registration deadlines: January 5. Ten spots available, first-come, first served.
