Poetry on Serendipity Farm

Summer 2014 quarter (Session II)

Taught by

We will read and write poetry while camping on Serendipity Farm, which is nestled at the foot of  Mt. Walker in the Olympics. This class is open to beginners, intermediate and seasoned poets. We will research and present on contemporary poets as we explore our various poetic voices within an inner and outer landscape.  We will write haiku, free verse, nature poems and other poetic forms.  Students can expect their writing and understanding of poetry to be enhanced significantly.
