Online Poetry Writing Class

Class Description – How do we write narrative poems that the reader can believe in? During this session we will use our own life stories and experiences (real and imagined) to write narrative poems.

Imagine this. Mother sits near the rusty stove,
chops onions for the puchero pot. Radio’s on.
A soft bolero by Lucho Gatica, “Somos”: we are.
She sings along to her favorite tune. He wants
to talk. Dog sleeps under the table. He doesn’t
know how. He met an older boy. They kissed.
It just happened. In an instant.

From Table Variations By Leo Box
