The Soul of an Poem


Learn to draw on the elusive aspects of experience that give a poem depth and mystery. Using in-class exercises, objects, outside texts and personal journals, connect to your deepest material, shaping it into finished works.


Hermine Meinhard’s book Bright Turquoise Umbrella, published by Tupelo Press, was a finalist for the Poetry Society of America’s Norma Farber First Book Award. Her poems have appeared in many print and online publications and aired on public radio. Learn more at
