Denise Taylor ( Boston Globe West ) " him the pied piper of poets... with his fingers in so many poetry pots...whenever he spies talent he makes sure the voice is heard"

with small press poet, publisher,
and activist
Doug Holder"

Course ID:
Course Name: Poetry Writing & Publishing (Writing & Speaking)

Description: Doug Holder is a widely published poet and founder of the Ibbetson Street Press of Somerville, which has produced books of poetry and journals since 1998. Join Doug as he demystifies the poetry writing and publishing process. We'll develop our poems in a supportive atmosphere, and provide tips for getting your work published. Many students in this class have gone on to publish their poetry in small literary magazines, and some have even started their own magazines. This course is perfect for the novice poet or the poet who has been away from the "scene" for a while. Please bring three poems to the first session (six copies of each). There will be a field trip to the Newton Free Library Poetry series where students will have a chance to read from their work.
