Nothing conveys the spirit of Valentine’s Day like an original poem written specifically for one’s beloved. In this workshop, attendees will look at examples of fantastic, sexy poems from throughout history and discuss what makes them work as well as they do. With some basic guidelines for composing excellent, heady poetry from the instructor and these poems as models, attendees will begin to make notes towards crafting poems of their own. There will be time at the end of the class for brief one-on-one feedback from the instructor. Everyone should leave the class feeling well on their way to an incredibly seductive gift for the object of your affection.
