Online Poetry Classes http://tinyblog.teenytiny.org
The class has a limit of 12 students, so you’ll be sure to get personalized feedback on your work. You’ll write four poems over the course of the month (April 1-30), and I’ll give you constructive comments on all four pieces. We’ll also read a variety of published poetry and do freewriting exercises each week to generate ideas for poems. You’ll receive instruction in free verse poetry, with emphasis on techniques like imagery, line breaks, repetition, and voice.
I have an MFA in English (emphasis on poetry writing) from the University of Washington, and I’ve been teaching writing classes at Edmonds Community College since 2004. My book of poetry,Postcards to Box 464, was published by Bootstrap Press in 2010, and I’m the author of several published chapbooks as well. For samples of my work, please see my website.
If you have any questions about the class, or would like to see a sample assignment, please feel free to email me. I hope you’ll share the information about this class with friends, and keep an eye on this page for information about future classes.
