Join this exploration of ancient work from poets such as Rumi and Hafiz, and contemporary poets including Mary Oliver and Ellen Bass. We use these transcendent poems as a source of inspiration, in service of inspiring you to create rich, textured, poetry of celebration and intimacy with infinity. We embark on prompt-based writing exercises using the ecstatic experience as our inspiration—and discuss the process along the way. Expect to complete the course with multiple drafts of spiritual poems and at least one on its second draft.
