Hi. I’m Kristi. I’m a poet & writer, educator since 2005. I live in Costa Rica, where things are calm these days. (Read more about me and my projects here!)

This course is a retreat into poetry reading and rest for English speakers around the world. We’re going to read a variety of contemporary poets, so you’ll find new poets you love. We won’t engage in academic literary analysis (and overanalysis!) but we’ll touch on some elements of poetry from a poet’s perspective. I hope you become more comfortable with reading and talking about poetry whether you’re a pro or whether you feel a little uncertain. Through daily exercises, you’ll also gain some ideas for poetry writing. Most importantly, I hope this course helps you restore, gain inspiration, and carve out your path for self care.
