NonFest: Poetry and History 21LA11-6

This class is part of the North Shore Readers and Writers NonFest.

Please visit the landing page here for a full description of the two NonFest tracks. 

Read, discuss, and write from poems by contemporary poets that evoke and invoke history in various ways. Histories, whether personal, societal, or a combination thereof, often ask to be re-examined and even healed through the power of language, symbols, images and sharing with our fellow human beings. There will be prompts during every session designed to encourage students’ subconsciousness to surface what matters most, and what is unspoken that yearns to be seen and heard. Craft concerns and ideas about technique and artistic choices will be folded into the lectures, discussions, and prompts.

This class must meet minimum enrollment by October 5, 2021 at 4 PM. Please register before this date to ensure your spot.

Due to current covid-19 safety protocol, class enrollment will be limited to allow for physical distancing, etc. Students are encouraged to register early. Should you find that the class you want to attend is full, we encourage you to get on our waitlist and, as safety standards continue to evolve, we anticipate that additional class spaces will be made available.

Should COVID 19 affect our ability to meet in person this class will pivot to a virtual class for the same duration of time with minor modifications.
