Helped me tremendously…

I have to admit I was a little skeptical about a poetry class being offered online. But the price was right and with the weekly salons, I could try it out without having to pay for 8 weeks’ worth of classes. I am very impressed. The teacher is clearly very knowledgable and experienced, but his approach has never made me feel intimidated. I get to hear my work as if it weren’t mine, which has helped me tremendously to see what is working and what isn’t working. I also have found that I really like that the class is online. I can sit at home, in my comfy clothes, without braving the elements and giving up any extra time for commuting. So I don’t get as nervous about hearing my poetry read aloud. The only negative thing I have to say about it is the video quality at first was a little hit or miss with the software they were using. However, it has been changed and things are running much more smoothly. And I’m going to be signing up for the 8 week Poetics Level I course.
