Poetry of Hope and Feathered Things
In this dark winter of 2017, let’s turn to poetry of flight and hope. We’ll engage in lively discussions of bird poems by Gregg and Hirshfield and several newer poets too. We will have in-class and take-home writing exercises and optional, supportive in-class critiques of your poems. A course reading packet will be distributed in the first class. Michelle Regalado Deatrick holds an MFA from the University of Michigan; she won the Chautauqua Poetry Award and loves teaching poetry. The class is every other week starting on March 9th. (3/9, 3/23, 4/6, and 4/20) ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR THIS COURSE. To register, please submit your paper registration form and separate check for $25 by Wednesday, January 18 at 12:00 p.m. to: OLLI at U of M, 2401 Plymouth Road, Suite C, Ann Arbor, MI 48105. Please contact the office with any questions. We will hold a lottery that afternoon and you will hear soon thereafter whether you have been accepted into the course.
