Poetry Workshop at Village Square Booksellers with Jim Fowler (no relation to owner Pat). The goal of this course is to introduce more people to the art of writing poetry and will include a discussion of modern poetry in various forms and styles. Each week, the course will provide time to share and discuss participant's poetry.
Students should bring a poem and copies to the first class. The course will be limited to 4 to 8 students to allow adequate time to go through everyone's poetry contributions and will meet in the cafe at Village Square Booksellers.
