Class Description

This group is for poets of all levels, at any stage of the process who want to be part of a supportive, weekly ONGOING writing group, whether you’re generating new poems or at work on your fourth collection! Meetings are structured so as to be casual and manageable with busy lifestyles, and as such there will be no readings or assignments outside of group meetings, and the commitment to your own writing. Each meeting will include a mix of text-study and discussion of masterful poems; discussion and breakdown of different craft topics; prompts and generative in-class writing time; and an opportunity to share your work (and/or goals) aloud with the group for on-the-spot feedback and/or brainstorming (always optional). The week-by-week agenda (including topics of discussion and poems the group will discuss) will evolve and change in response to the interests and goals of the writers in the group, as led by Anders. Above all, the Poetry Group is a space of community-building, creative support, and craft / process development for writers who aim to make time for their work and want to connect with other writers in a supportive, stimulating environment. Please note: This group offers the opportunity for verbal on-the-spot feedback for those who would like to share work during class time, yet this group does not provide formal workshopping, written feedback, or submission of work for critique. STRUCTURE: This is an ongoing group that meets weekly for eight weeks, followed by a 2 - 3-week break, before continuing on for another eight week session, and so forth. Registration in this group is according to an ongoing subscription / membership plan: once you register, your place is held in INSTRUCTOR ANDERS CARLSON-WEE is the author of Disease of Kings (W.W.
