F411 Fall 2018 So You Wanna Write Poetry but Don’t Think You Can
Thursdays, 11:50–1:15, Sept. 20–Nov. 8
Instructors: Ed Sadtler, Carolyn Wyatt
Class limit: 10
This is a class for those who aspire to writing poetry but fear there’s some mysterious secret behind this written, sometimes verbal, art form. Perhaps you just need the encouragement and impetus to give it a try. Sign up and find the support you need! Each session will be divided into three segments: a discussion of craft, a time to write, and a time to share what’s been written. Come and surprise yourself!
Ed Sadtler, a graduate of Shippensburg State College in Pennsylvania, has conducted many writing workshops at OLLI, and has taught poetry writing classes for the Lifetime Learning Institute of Northern Virginia Community College.
Carolyn Wyatt is a retired federal information officer who traveled widely in that position. She has an MA in Spanish from Indiana University and aspires to be a poet and a wise woman.
