The Spring Term General Meeting and Course Previews will be held on Saturday, April 2, at  10:30 am in the Wilson Lecture Hall on the campus of Young Harris College. If you plan to take Nancy Simpson’s class, which is a four week POETRY WRITING WORKSHOP, be there Saturday morning to sign up or turn in your application. Fee $13.00. Limit 10 students. Meet weekly for four weeks beginning MAY 9TH.  Meeting on  MONDAY, 1:00 - 3:00.   Course description below. (Institute of Continuing Learning)

The focus will be on your poems. If you are 
a practicing poet and want to share your writing 
with other poets and get constructive comments, 
you will fit right in. It is only a four week class but in setting aside four weeks for writing, there is a genuine opportunity for you to advance your poetry.

This class follows the workshop pattern that is found at universities throughout the country. Beginning the first meeting, and each week you will bring copies of one of your poems to be read, share, and discuss.  There will be instruction as we discuss your writing but no lecture. At the last meeting, the  publication process will be discussed, and a list of markets will be given.
