Celebrate and energize your writing practice in the new year with a 30-day poetry-writing adventure led by Sarah Carson, whose poetry has appeared in Diagram, Guernica, The Missouri Review, and more. Sarah is the author of three full-length collections of poetry, including How to Baptize a Child in Flint, Michigan, forthcoming from Persea Books in November 2022.
Each day we will celebrate poetry with a short reading and writing prompt. By the end of the month, you’ll have 30 new drafts and an appreciation for poetry’s many styles and forms.
If a poem a day sounds overwhelming, don’t worry. Each day’s prompts will be short. Our goal will be to generate rough drafts. Messy, imaginative, care-free work is encouraged.
In this fully online, asynchronous course, students will have a chance to share work with peers and be encouraged in their poetry journey. We will also end the course with ideas for continuing a poetry-writing practice after our month is over, as well as some tips for revising the 30 poems you wrote along the way!
Lots of new writing.
A deeper sense of your writing and unique gifts as a writer.
New friends who are on the same journey.
A feeling of creative playfulness and possibility.
You can pay for the course in full or use Shop Pay or Affirm to pay over time with equal Monthly Payments. Both options are available at checkout.
ONLINE COURSE STRUCTURE:
This class is entirely asynchronous which means you complete the weekly assignments on your own schedule. There are no set meeting times in order to allow for greater participation; your cohort will consist of writers from across different time zones, which allows for a wonderful diversity of voices.
Along with your weekly deadlines there is plenty of interaction with Sarah and your peers within Wet Ink, our dedicated online classroom. Craft materials, lectures, reading assignments, and writing prompts are all available through the online classroom. Students also post work and provide and receive feedback within the online classroom environment.
You can get the work done as you see fit week-to-week, so it is perfect for any schedule. There are discussion questions each week inspired by the assigned readings and topics in the lecture notes. Students are encouraged to take these wherever is most compelling and/or useful for them. Sarah engages with these discussions throughout the week and you will receive feedback from all assigned writing activities.
