Class Description: This class will encourage multidisciplinary approaches to writing poetry and consider the environments that foster our creative practices. Poems and prompts will be shared to inspire us to write through our emotions and thoughts about place. The class will be open to all experiences of the land and life, including, but not limited to, the joy of being united with the earth and the grief we may feel over rapidly changing ecologies. All writing levels and backgrounds are welcome! In-person.
