Participant Testimonials:

We were fortunate to have such learned and wonderful poets to lead the course. They did so much work on critiquing our individual work and returning it to us each week!

I have never written poetry; in an informal, positive environment, this class gave me that opportunity.

Course Title: Writing Poems/Making Them Better (Fall Term 2019)

Everyone was so engaged that the class ran a little long. This was one of the best OSHER courses I have taken.

Don and Betsy had different approaches but they complemented each other beautifully. I would take a class with them again in a heartbeat!
