A few months ago Kirsten Andersen who is a Stegner Fellow at Stanford University visited my classroom. She sat with my students and conferred with them about their poetry. She spent an extraordinary amount of time with my students truly listening to what they had to say about their writing. Even though she was only in my room for a few hours, I could tell that she was the kind of person who was passionate about the teaching of poetry.
I just found out that Kirsten is offering an online poetry writing class through Stanford’s Continuing Studies Department. If you’re interested in developing your poetry writing skills further, then consider signing up for her course, which can be taken for credit.
