Online Poetry Class (Stanford University)

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.

I am a literacy consultant who has spent over a decade working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grade K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.

I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
