SummaryLed by award-winning poet Laura Da', this class will look to land and water ways as a source of poetic inspiration.
DescriptionTake your poetry to the next level by examining and experimenting with how you evoke nature in your work.

Laura Da’ is a poet and teacher. A lifetime resident of the Pacific Northwest, Da’ studied creative writing at the University of Washington and the Institute of American Indian Arts. She is Eastern Shawnee. Her first book, “Tributaries,” was published by the University of Arizona Press, won a 2016 American Book Award and was a finalist for the Washington State Book Award. In 2015, Da’ was both a Made at Hugo House Fellow and a Jack Straw Fellow. Her newest poetry collection, “Instruments of the True Measure” (forthcoming) charts the coordinates and intersections of land, history, and culture.
