National Poetry Month 2013: Poem of the Day
In celebration of National Poetry Month, Denver Public Library staff and guest poets have recorded poems written either by themselves or their favorite poet. We will be publishing a new poem each day during the month of April. Please note, some of the poems contain adult language.
In this course we will spend our first meeting reading and discussing some of the greatest poems of place, from Homer to the present; in the second meeting participants will have the opportunity to present their own poems of place for discussion by the group. Instructor David J. Rothman teaches at the University of Colorado at Boulder and Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver. More information.
