Taught by Rae Kim & Eva Whitney
February 26–March 5
Mondays, 6–8 p.m.

Join us for Making Metaphors in The Mission! During this workshop, you will read a selection of classic and contemporary poems, as well as explore the unique and eclectic culture of San Francisco. We will discuss a variety of critical poetic devices to build a poetic vocabulary, and familiarize you with reading and writing poetry. Prompts will be sprinkled throughout the lesson, and you’ll be asked to draw from your shared and individual San Franciscan experiences to inspire your pieces. By the end, you will emerge with a sparkling poem about your own adventures in the city! Taught by two high-school writers from the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, this course is meant to show you how easy it can be to write poetry using your own experiences.
