NonFest: Memory and Poetry 21LA11-5

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. 

While exploring different facets of memory, students will create new poems that draw from their own personal storehouses. Most of the time will be spent creating new work and responding to works in progress. Joyce will lead students through an exploration of thinking about how memory works, finding different facets of the remembering process, and using discussion and exploration to find and shape material into poems. There is no “required” text, but Joyce will share a variety of relevant work with the class, and students are asked to bring a poem that interests them.

This class must meet minimum enrollment by October 2, 2021 at 4 PM. 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 one-to-one mentoring sessions with each student, one hour in length.
