Poetry Nights

NEW for Fall 2018! For those who read poetry and for those who both read and write poetry, these sessions offer several ways of understanding different kinds of writing called poetry and how they work—or don’t. The ways in which we’ll examine poetry include the stratagems of the craft, word play and ambiguity, the role of cliché, the findings of neurology (how poetry works in the brain, and how some doesn’t), history, cultural norms, and reading aloud. Poetry writers who are not faint-hearted or overly sensitive to frank responses from instructor and audience are welcome to read. No one has to read, of course.

INSTRUCTOR: WALLACE KAUFMAN
TUESDAYS, 5:30 – 7:30 PM • OCT. 9 – OCT. 30 • $50
