Intro to Poetry

Generate new poems in this five-week class designed to kick your writing into gear. Each week we'll share our writing, find inspiration in published poems, and respond to in-class exercises to get going on the next piece. Throughout the class we'll discuss craft, experiment with new poetic forms, play with language and line breaks, and find out what sparks our process. 
Instructor: Corey Miller is a writer and brewer from Cleveland, Ohio. His writing has been nominated for Best Microfictions, Best Small Fictions, and included on the Wigleaf Top 50 longlist. He was a finalist for the F(r)iction Flash Fiction Competition and shortlisted for The Forge Flash Fiction Competition. When he isn’t working or writing, he enjoys taking the dogs on adventures.
