For 30 years, I have taught a wide variety of creative writing, composition, and literature classes to adults, children, college students, and incarcerated adults and teens. I am an enthusiastic, practical, and inspiring teacher. I currently teach at The Writer's Center and in private homes in Maryland and the DC area.

Imagery in Poetry
Saturday, Nov. 9 from 1:30-4:30pm
Images are one important way that a poem thinks and makes an argument. By improving our description powers we can build stronger poems that reach beyond words to a powerful collective of visual language. In class, participants will look at a few examples, and explore how expansive images can provide us with a toolbox of words, relationships, and options to focus and strengthen our poems. Bring a poem to be worked on in class (typed, not more than one page) that has imagery you want to improve and expand.
