The 44 Poetry Class is a collaboration between the Community Literature Initiative and the Sims Library of Poetry focused on teaching writers how to improve their poetry and giving them space to write and recite. This class is for beginner poets who are looking to enhance their craft. 

In this course, poets will learn literary devices (personification, extended metaphor, imagery, etc.); rhythm, meter, rhyme, and syllabic count; poetic forms (sonnet, ode, ekphrastic, etc.); and performance/spoken word poetry.

Classes take place live on Zoom the first and third Saturday of every month, beginning October 2, 2021. Tuition for the course is $44/month or $528/year. Students can choose to pay monthly or yearly.*

*By signing up for the 44 Poetry Class, students will automatically become a 44 donor/member of the Sims Library of Poetry and will receive member perks, including a bi-monthly printed newsletter.
