Leaping: How to Wildly Advance Your Writing

Wed, 02/01/2017 - 19:00
There is really only one way to improve your writing: by writing. Poet Laureate Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer offers a five-week course at the Ah Haa School for the Arts where students will be tasked to write a poem a day for thirty days; whether it's a late-night haiku about your cat or a sonnet in rhymed iambic pentameter, she says that what matters most is that you practice your writing. Trommer will give students a thirty-day inspiration booklet with sixty possible writing prompts, and will help guide them through the fun and creative writing process. The class takes place on Wednesday evenings and the cost is $200. Students will leave inspired and with a body of poetic work.
