Poem It Out Classroom

week 4: continuing to connect with poetry

liz lamoreux

When I taught this course for the first time, one my students asked:

I love that you have introduced us to so many great poets and poems but I am wondering what to do once I am on my own and no longer have your gentle guidance and reassurance. Do you have any suggestions for how to discover poets and poems that you like and/or how to continue with a practice of poetry and generating new ideas?

I love this question and have shared a few ideas in the following video.

A few websites that are great for exploring new poets and poems:

Poetry Foundation
Poets.org
Writer's Almanac 
Poetry Out Loud 
Poetry 180

A few books and ebooks about writing and/or writing prompts that I recommend:

Sabrina Ward Harrison's books that include journaling prompts
Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones
Jenna McGuiggan's Alchemy Daily prompts
