Trying to find your way back to the page? Have a poem draft you’d like a new set of eyes on, whether it’s a few years old or you wrote it on yesterday’s commute? Want to meet other poets eager to learn and build community? Have a hankering for a pastry? Then Pie & Poetry is the class for you!
Pie & Poetry is one part generative, one part workshop. In the first hour, our instructor will lead the class in a craft talk, a close reading of a poem, and/or a generative prompt or two. In the second hour, students that have a draft they’d like to workshop with the class can do so on a first-come, first-serve basis. This draft can be from the generative portion of class, or written beforehand. Even if a student doesn’t bring a poem to be workshopped, they may participate in the conversation as much or as little as they wish, as the process is a learning experience for all involved. As for our in-class treat, we’ll be providing pie from First Slice for folks to eat.
This space’s goal is to foster community amongst poets, and to encourage our development as poets of all experience levels.
