Line, Sound, Meter, and Voice:
Poems as Beautiful Songs

In this workshop we will explore craft elements that lead to beautiful, meaningful poems. Grounded in nature poetry and nature themes, in this fellowship we will study the poetic line, sound and meter in poetry, and how our individual voices shape the work we make. Each week we’ll read together, write together, and share ideas together. The class runs for four weeks on Monday nights from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., beginning May 6th. Taught by nationally renowned poet Michael Kleber-Diggs.

Class dates: May 6, 13, 20 & June 3 • $100

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
