Poetry Class

Ages: 9yrs+
Private Lesson Duration: 30min - 1hr
Group Class Duration: 1hr

Wildwood is thrilled to offer writing to people, writers, singers, and musicians of all ages. We will write, read, discuss, edit, memorize, and learn to perform poetry. Classes nurture an intellectual, experimental, and supportive environment to express ourselves through humor, sincerity, passion — as yourself.

Emphasis is distributed across a wide variety of canonized, contemporary, and experimental poets of various genres, ages, and styles. You may find us spread out on the carpet, writing by the reflecting pool, or performing for one another. When accessible, poetry in translation and foreign language poetry will also be read and written.

For students enrolled in a minimum of 7wks, series also culminates in hand-bound books, guided submissions to poetry publications and Wildwood Poetry Journal, and invitation to perform during Wildwood recitals.
