Metaphysical Poetry 6-Week Workshop with Frank Alvarez

This class introduces students to the poetry writing process and prompts them to explore their creativity, heart and voice. Students write from their perspectives and imagination to develop their own unique style and artistic craft. Through writing, students learn to use poetry as a medium for self-expression, self-discovery and personal empowerment. Through workshop, they learn about their work by hearing insights from different perspectives, and how to give feedback to other student work. This class is a safe space where students can share their personal stories and feel seen and heard by each other. By the end of the course, students will have a portfolio of their work and an understanding of their voice. No experience with poetry needed.
