Learn how to perfect your poetry in this intensive four-week course for genre writers of all levels. Learn how to turn your short stories into poems, poems into short stories, classic form poetry, free-verse, and reading to an audience. Students will be given assignments and study points, followed by a graded critique, designed to get your work ready for sending to publishers, and to give you the confidence you need when giving readings. Classes and critiques will take place via email and Skype (where available to the student - you will not be turned away if you do not have Skype), providing one-on-one care and attention to your work, including line-edits. Whether you are writing a collection, a series for magazine submissions, or just a few poems for yourself...this course will be invaluable to your growth as a writer.

Four Weeks; classes and assignments will be given every Tuesday, beginning November 4, 2014, at 6pm PST / 9pm EST. Students will receive the syllabus and required reading for each class upon sign-up. No refunds for no-shows. If you must skip a class, make-ups will be given on a case-by-case basis. Payments can be made via paypal at, or via Square in person.
