ONSITE: Writing Poetry
- Class time will focus on the discussion of shared readings and our creative process. We will try to make time for writing exercises during class, but students who wish to produce completed drafts should expect to continue writing outside of the scheduled class time. Students may want to plan for additional reading outside of class time, but it will not be a requirement. All necessary materials will be provided, but you're welcome to bring a notebook and a favorite writing instrument.
Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
This is an On-site course. Students must follow current Covid-19 protocols, as outlined on our website. On-site courses do not come with studio access outside of class time. Paid open studio access is available through our Studio Access Program. Please visit visarts.org for more information.
