Power and Poetry
Sundays, 3 - 4:30 pm, May 24 - June 14th

Power and Poetry, a four-week course taught by Ángel García, will focus on the importance of our neighborhoods in the Everett and Near South and communities and the ways in which those places have shaped our lives. Together, we will explore our homes, our neighborhoods, and our communities to reveal what we enjoy about where we live and what we would want to change about where we live. We will explore various poetic techniques and forms, read poems from contemporary poets living in various places around the world, and use both visual images and our imaginations to write poems that tell the stories of our neighborhood. This course is open to all experience levels. While the course will be mostly taught in English, Ángel speaks both English and Spanish and will encourage students to write in their preferred language.

Due to high demand, this class is no longer open to folks living outside our core neighborhoods in the Everett and Near South.
