Online • Poetry
Our goal is to create a safe space to share during class. Come prepared to be respectful and only provide constructive criticism. This class is a great opportunity for anyone looking to gain more confidence in themselves as public speakers and want some practicing in reading their work publicly. Important: Bring a piece of writing with you! Please bring a poetry or prose piece that you want to perform for class. While it is best to bring work of your own writing, it is also fine to bring a piece of written work from your favorite writer(s) as well. Though, I strongly encourage you to still bring work that "isn't ready yet." Additionally, there will be opportunities during class to write and respond to various writing prompts. So there will also be chances for you to develop new writings of your own as well!

I really enjoyed Yume's class! It had a nice pace, with time to write and see strong examples of performance poetry in addition to just performing. I left feeling more energized than when I started. Thanks Yume!

Yumi opened up for me a whole new perspective on poetry and how it's performed. She's passionate about what she teaches and let's you digest the information in your own way and on your own time. She inspires you to express yourself and learn from others as well.
