I also take their classes and look forward to every other Tuesday -- Nickole Brown and Jessica Jacobs do an incredible amount of research and come beautifully prepared to study poems with everyone (there were more than 80 participants one day!) After studying a poem in depth they then give a prompt which allows everyone to write down notes, or a line or two toward a poem. They always insist that there's no pressure, no expectations which makes all the sessions such a pleasure and inspiring, motivating occasions. I'm hooked.

Way to go, Nin! I love this!! And I know with Jessica and Nikole as your guides you will be writing a slew of new poems!! ❤️❤️❤️

Thanks Denise! And yes, guides they are. So brilliant. So fun!!

And Laure-Anne, yes, exactly. And I so love your poetry and contributions to the class. It's just amazing, no two ways about it.
