Loved the course. Douglas Kearney is amazing as an instructor. I love poetry and this workshop has made me happy during the times of COVID 19. I thank CalArts for the encouragement and appreciation.
This was a superb workshop. I enjoyed myself thoroughly and learned a lot that came in my way. Grasping poetry devices taught in such an fun way was really awesome. The mentors were very supportive.

Great teacher and great content BUT I just wish that it would have been more abundant with information. it seemed for times maybe too short.

Early days yet but I've seen enough to realise it is interesting, intense, funny, persuasive, stimulating and creative. Thank you Douglas.

A great workshop to learn the basis of poetry and to start writing and sharing your poems. The clases are fun and the people really kind

Loved the short but sharp classes! Thank you! Would love to see more peer reviews (didn't get any on my poems yet).
Best of luck!

It was a really nice experience.
The teacher is awesome.
The only thing is that my certificate is written in Chinese characters.
Peer reviews can be a gamble. But the professor is excellent. Helpful to get started with poetry or get over writer's block.

Really helpful to take class, but the reviews from some students were not always accurate and it got mixed up sometimes.

i find this course highly helpful to learn new aspects of poetry, embrace new thoughts and new ideas to write upon.

Some good ideas to progress your poems. Could be more interaction between participants.
