About This Class

Learn with creative and marketing writer Whitney Strong how to write the perfect Valentine’s Day poem for that special someone. If you’re looking to try something new this Valentine’s Day (or for an anniversary or birthday), a little bit of sentiment can overshadow the most expensive gift (except airpods, right?).

You’ll follow along, learning how to write a poem straight from the heart, without worrying about meter or rhyme, for a free verse love letter about a special time you shared together.

And, BONUS, we’ll talk a little about how you can present your poem and make it a little more special. No matter if you want to sneak out and scribble your adoration on their car window, frost your words of love onto a cake, or just express tender emotion in your own handwriting, the right presentation will kick your gift up to another level.

Whether you’ve been writing poems for years, or you’re just giving it a try, this is the class for you.
