Poetry Appreciation with Philip Rosenbach

  • The Cottage School 224 Main Street Gladstone, NJ, 07934 United States (map)

As part of our ongoing series of workshops for The Cottage School parents and community members,  our adult-ed poetry instructor, Phil Rosenbach, will lead a poetry class beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 4th. No experience is necessary and all are welcome!

We will look at short, understandable, well-written poems. We will also look at some poorly written poems to try to determine what makes a poem good or bad. Participants will discuss their own view as to what makes a poem successful or unsuccessful, interesting or boring, fun or tedious, or that there may be no way to determine the difference. We will also look at poems where words or entire lines have been blacked out to see if we can make any improvements. Why not?

If you have a favorite poem, bring it to the class for reading and discussion. This workshop is open to the public so feel free to bring a friend!

If you are interested in attending this workshop, please RSVP here.
