one of march's traveling poetry classes is to make up for a snowday in february. the first will involve amiri baraka's poems. the second will be a chance to do collaging with poetry; feel free to bring magazines and other printed visuals which might be useful to cut up as well as scissors and tape or glue. i'll bring some as well, but more is merrier sometimes to make sure there's enough to go around.
any topics of creative writing are welcome for sharing and workshopping during class by those who attend, but we have inspirational topics as prompt ideas, too. please bring a few copies to share with other students, if you can, for anything you write and want to practice reading as well as discussing. but just having your original copy to read from is okay, if that's easier for the writer. we may be a little more creating-oriented during the collaging class, though, of course.
