Poetry: The Art of Stealing

Teaching Artist Tina Braziel

Good poets borrow, great poets steal, according T.S. Eliot. In this class, we’ll take up his challenge by “stealing” the best moves of master poets to create our own original poems. Each week we’ll compose a new poem by imitating some of the best aspects of a published poem or poems. A great class for the beginning or experienced poet – there are always beauties to steal from the masters, and “stealing” makes composing poetry fun and easy.
