I will be recommending these classes…

I have been to the Chicago Cultural Center many times and never knew that Chicago School of Poetics classes are held there. I took an 8-week (Saturdays only) workshop as a means of dusting off a long dormant passion for verse. The class, led by poet Larry Sawyer, far exceeded my expectations. The intimate, casual setting, and Larry’s sincere efforts at personal, yet objective critique was just what I needed. There was also a bit of luck involved, in that my fellow students were a thoughtful, intelligent bunch who knew how to have fun with it. I suspect the Chicago School of Poetics will continue to attract a high quality of people, and I know I will be recommending these classes to anyone who’ll listen!
