Carl Adamshick will be offering an advanced poetry class at Literary Arts this fall.
Building Your Book:
An Advanced Poetry Class with Carl Adamshick
Course Description from Carl: The class will discuss the twenty pages that make the core of your book. Discussions will be centered around your topics, themes and moods and what would enhance your book in style and breadth. Assignments and prompts will be derived from these conversations. Your book will be worked through and, like a poem, go through many ideas and drafts. And finally we will talk about what to do once your book is finished.
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Saturday, October 27th – Saturday, December 1st
Literary Arts, 925 SW Washington, Portland
