Beginning this Sunday: Commuter Poetics

commutingYour daily commute is a poem; from A to B its form, repetition its music, and mishap its volta. Leave class with the makings of a poem / poems, new ideas about found poetry, and a process for writing poems when ordinarily you’d have neither the time nor the inspiration. A side benefit: you’ll look forward to the trip to and from work! (Or school, or the grocery store, or wherever you travel back and forth.)


Instructor: Adam Golaski
Dates: Sundays for 4 weeks, meeting July 6, 13, 20, 27 from 4-6pm
Location: 186 Carpenter Street
Tuition: $170
