A MESSAGE FROM NC POET AND WRITING INSTRUCTOR NANCY SIMPSON

Hello Fellow Writers and Students of Poetry Writing,

It’s becoming one of my busiest teaching years for me after all.  Choose a class, or at least please pass the info on to others who may be interested.
Thank you, Nancy Simpson




(1) Write Poems Your Reader Can "See"

at John C. Campbell Folk School. This probably will be my last week long poetry class at the folk school. It is intense for sure.  If you can afford to give yourself a week for writing and organizing your poetry, this is the class most likely to change your writing life.


Instructor: Nancy Simpson
Tuition: $546.00 (half price for local students)
Pre register now.  (828)837-2775 or 1-800 FOLK-SCH

(Class description)

Write Poems Your Reader Can "See"

Time to stop asking your reader to play a guessing game. Learn to put your poem on the page so that the reader gets the picture and says, "Yes, I see." Instruction covers how to encapsulate truth, emotion, and music in poems. Learn the two rules of poetry that cannot be omitted - not even in writing free-verse. Share your work and get helpful feedback; we'll also discuss publication. All levels welcome.

(Nancy Simpson with former student Monica Henson)


Note: This class only. TO MY FORMER POETRY STUDENTS,  I’m OFFERING YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH MY GUIDENCE DURING THE WEEK ASSEMBLING YOUR POETRY MANUSCRIPT.
