Wordsmithing: Poetry in the Forge

Like the blacksmith has a forge, the wordsmith has a workshop. In this setting, poetry is written, read, critiqued, and perfected.

Come and practice the art of metaphor, try your hand at a sestina or villanelle, workshop poems in a graduate-school setting, find joy in revision, meet poets through their writing, and learn how and where to effectively submit your work.

The course culminates in a poetry reading where you can share your words with others. Whether you’re 18 or 80, a beginner or long-time writer, you can watch your words take new shape and beauty in Redding’s second annual offering of this community poetry course.

Where: Shasta County Arts Council inside Old City Hall

When: January 11 – February 15, 2012 on Wednesday at 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.mm

Cost: $145 for a 6-week class
