High School Poetry Workshop

Date:  April 15, 22, 29

Format:  Online via Zoom

Time:  4:30-6 PM

Class Size:  12-15  
Grade Level: Grades 9-12

In this three-week workshop, we’ll explore the ways that poets engage with the natural world. How do ecological themes show up in poems? How can we use poetry as a tool to explore the more-than-human world? In each session, we’ll look at a few poems together, and then students will have the opportunity to write and share their own work.
