Program Description

About this event:

In this 90-minute class, we’ll discuss how poems can get beyond the “I” of the beholder and the role of point of view as a series of deliberate decisions. We’ll draw inspiration from published work and create our own poems from a series of guided prompts.

Funding for this event provided by the Nell B. Currie and Antoinette McNamara Fund.
