NonFest: A Poem’s Progress: Ways to Get from One Line to the Next 21LA11-4

This class is part of the North Shore Readers and Writers NonFest.

Please visit the landing page here for a full description of the two NonFest tracks. 

If a poem is the language of the act of the mind, how do we get from one line to the next? In this session, which combines presentation and workshop, we will discuss published poems that use a variety of methods of progression: from leaping to associative to processional to elliptical to allusive, to impressionistic. Students will work through a series of prompts to draft their own poems, and the class will share encouragement and compliments as well as ideas for continuation and revision.

This class must meet minimum enrollment by October 15, 2021. Please register before this date to ensure your spot.

Due to current covid-19 safety protocol, class enrollment will be limited to allow for physical distancing, etc. Students are encouraged to register early. Should you find that the class you want to attend is full, we encourage you to get on our waitlist and, as safety standards continue to evolve, we anticipate that additional class spaces will be made available.

Should covid-19 affect our ability to meet in person this class will pivot to virtual class for the same duration of time with minor modifications.
