Workshop: Devouring Poetry
(OLLI Class and Events)
It’s simple. We love stories that surprise, inform, and sustain us. Narratives that lift us up, heal, and give us hope. Words that provide new ways of seeing others, the world, and ourselves. Using narrative poetry from great poets, plus short lectures and group discussions, we’ll explore language as a tool for living more fully and as a catalyst for our own writing. Writers and non-writers are welcome. Those who wish can take advantage of a uniquely supportive feedback and writing tips system, where we’ll each read and be read by others and make written comments between sessions.
