Throughout this 5-week course, participants will work on producing new poems from a series of prompts, each offering a different set of thematic, formal, and structural boundaries to help jumpstart their writing process. The goal is to nudge poets out of their comfort zones to produce by limitation. "This class will not focus on fixed forms," says instructor Brian Tierney, "but instead will help participants reinvigorate their creativity by offering strategies for how to begin and, in that way, how to break free from default writing habits, discovering new entry points to the writing of poems." All writers welcome.
