Fields of Study
literature and writing

We will camp on Serendipity Farm which is nestled at the foot of Mt. Walker and read our poetry around a campfire.  This poetry class is open to beginning, intermediate, and seasoned poets.  Students will research and present on a Beat writer of their choice as well as write poetry inspired by various voices of the Beats.  They will work collaboratively and independently to present their respective Beat writer in an engaging manner to the group.  Students can expect to accelerate their poetry writing as well as gain a greater understanding of why the Beat poets influenced history and literary culture.
