Poetry For Life
Metrophobia is the fear of poetry. Many people believe poetry is only for specially-gifted writers, but poetry is about life. We are surrounded by it daily: in songs, plays, movies, on posters, artwork, and even on subway cars. This class will explore all the ways writing poetry enhances us: getting to know ourselves better, helping us be present and “see” the world around us, enlivening our prose writing, and enjoying the sheer pleasure it brings us. There will be lots of opportunities for poetry exercises to help us broadening our lives and perspectives with poetry.
