Poetic Forms

Jan 2006

I really liked Josh Green's class. Though initially I was annoyed at being asked to write poetry in forms I didn't usually use, many of these exercises turned out to be helpful and stretched my poetic range by getting me to try new things. Josh is a really cool guy, and has a laid back yet subtly humorous way about him. Also, he looks like a poet. The only thing I didn't like about the class was how much work there was...there are a lot more things to do each week than in a normal poetry class, and it's easy to fall behind when postings are due sunday night.
