The six-week course will provide information on potential avenues for publication, as well as encourage entries into the local Max Ehrmann Poetry Contest. The class will culminate with the opportunity for each participant to share his or her work aloud at a public reading. Fee includes the required text “Poetry Repair Manual”, by Ted Kooser.
