Poetry Potpourri will continue the enriching experience of reading and discussing poetry started at OLLI by Dan Gilmore about four years ago. Various poetic forms will be explored to show the myriad of ways that poetry infuses our lives. We may use videos from the PBS Poetry in America series or speakers from the community for some sessions. Students will have the opportunity to participate by picking a poet/poems and leading the discussion. Website links and poems will be sent to class participants prior to each class by the SGLs.
Instructor(s): Stella Miles, Susan Rubin, Trudy Hill
Stella Miles has an administrative background and her career has been in academia. She has co-led sci-fi and fantasy classes and assisted with some poetry discussion classes. Reading and writing poetry has usurped SF&F, but maybe they will collide in this class?
Susan Rubin is a social worker who still practices part-time. She has co-led other OLLI classes, the most recent being Sci-Fi. Her first and only poem was published in her junior high magazine. Her interest in poetry lay dormant until she joined Dan Gilmore's poetry reading class. She was hooked.
Trudy has studied Calligraphy (the beautiful writing) throughout her college years and taught it in high school and adult education programs. She still uses it to design and produce posters, invitations and business cards both for friends and professionally. Trudy earned her MA in Art Education from the University of Wisconsin.
