About the course
Learn about poetry in a fun and accessible way. After reading and discussing existing poems you’ll start with specific writing assignments. You learn to play with language, accurately describing, paying attention to details, associating, in short: you come in touch with the richness of language. We practice with poetry elements such as rhythm, sound, imagery, and form. By writing poems you discover your own poetic voice.
