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.
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.

The course is superb but the explosive personality of the tutor may be charming to some, but it was a bit too much and way cacophonic for me

This was a great refresher course. I knew a lot of the information, but the challenges were a great opportunity to try new forms of poetry.
