Writing Poetry without a Parachute at the DSM Social Club!

Join me for what promises to be a super exciting six-session class at the Des Moines Social Club beginning February 8 for poets of all levels. We'll meet every Monday for 6 weeks from 6-7:30. Here's what's on the menu:

Nothing thrills like a creative moment—the kind in which you see the world with entirely new eyes. But those moments are elusive. When we try to force them, they disappear. Many times, it’s fear, self-censorship, and reliance on logic that stops us from listening to ourselves. But poetry is an ideal medium to practice creative bravery, because every memory, every idea, contains the seed of a poem. 

Each session will explore fun strategies to get your memories, experience and ideas down on paper and into poems. We’ll read exciting work by contemporary poets, then practice and share our results. 

The class will end with a student reading at the Des Moines Social Club in the evening. Your friends, family, and fans are invited! The voices that tell you “No” are not invited!

The total for all six sessions is $160. Register here: 
This is going to rock! I hope to see you there!
