This is a poetry writing class led by Conservatory educator, Kamal Kimball.
Channel your inner poet, and write some verse among the plants of the Conservatory! Get inspired by reading Japanese haiku and haibun (nature travel poems) in the Pacific Island Water Garden Biome and then learn about the ghazal, a traditional Arabic form, in the Desert Biome. After studying a few examples, you’ll get a chance to pull out the pens to write your own!
Poetic experience is not necessary, just a love of nature and words. Paper and writing utensils will be supplied, but participants are welcome to bring their own paper and pens if they have preferred materials.
