Poetry Drop-in classes: where we read and discuss two or more poems, and then use those poems as models for in-class writing exercises (which are then read out loud but that is optional). Artists have their life drawing classes—why can’t writers have a similar kind of thing?
Poetry Drop In is geared for everyone, beginners and those who have been writing for a while. They typically last an hour and a half.
