Come learn the basics of writing poetry with Nyeree Boyadjian! Throughout this four-week course, you will write, edit, share, and experience different types of poetry. Nyeree will help you explore the different emotions you want to evoke in your writing and dig deep to create poems you feel proud of. This will be a highly interactive course where you will be encouraged to read your poetry aloud and listen to the poems of others, provide and hear constructive feedback. The entire course will culminate with an “open-mic” style presentation of the final poem(s) you created throughout the course. All experience levels are welcome.
