Students will attend NYC Advanced Poetry at their scheduled times via Google Meet (with or without cameras enabled). Your exercises will be shared electronically, and the format of the live class will be the same as when you attend class in person, with students and teachers responding to your work and discussing the next week’s exercise.
This class asks students to recognize what makes a poem engaging and entertaining to the reader. Students follow the Craft Class syllabus (along with readings distributed by the teacher) from which exercises are taken. Many students are finishing exercises and publishing poetry in literary journals and anthologies.
Open to poets who have poetry publications, an MFA, or four post-graduate writing courses and students who have completed Level 2 at The Writers Studio. After completing a number of sessions in Advanced Poetry, students may go on to study with Philip Schultz in the Master Class, with permission of the teacher. Please contact Lisa Bellamy at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply for this class. Places in the class are awarded by the instructor on a case-by-case basis.
