Mondays, 11:00 – 13:00 (GMT + 13:00 Auckland)
January 29th – February 26th
(EST: Sundays, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM EST, January 28th – February 25th)

Show of hands, who’s intimidated by poetry? (Hand). And who’s nonetheless amazed and beguiled by poetry when it works really well? (Hand!) And who would like to finally face down their poetic fears by diving in and splashing around in various poetic forms; having fun with sound, rhythm and words, and maybe even finding a safe harbor in a few forms and poetic techniques? (HAND!!!!) Whether we become poet laureates together or not, we’ll for sure become better, braver, more elastic writers in whatever our favored genre might be, and have one hell of good time getting down and mucking about in the mysterious, beautiful depths of poetic forms, from the comfort of our own homes (possibly while wearing our pajamas).
