About This Class

When this class is over you will be a poet, and you will know why you are a poet.  There's a darn good chance that you will like your poem so much that you will submit it for publication, and because it will be a well-written poem, there's a good chance that it will be accepted for publication. 

However, don't expect to get rich quickly writing poetry. Do expect to have a lot of fun, and here's the best news: You can write this poem by yourself, or you can write it with a child, and help the child to experience the joy of writing.

If you're taking this class alone, that's great. There's nothing like building a new skill and having fun in the process, and there are few things in life that are more satisfying than writing a poem that you really like.  

If you share your poem with a few people, there's a good chance that they'll thank you. 

Hey, if you have kids or grandchildren, why not get them involved with this project--it will probably cost less than going to a movie, parking and buying popcorn.  Heck, why not have some popcorn available as you do this together.

Alan was sweet and made me feel at ease immediately, which was good because poetry can seem intimidating. But in Alan's class, poetry seems very do-able;-) Thank you!

Writing & Instruction that Entertains & Empowers


Thanks for stopping by. I'm new to Skillshare, but not to writing and instruction. (I also teach on other platforms.)

I have published over 30 books, hundreds of magazine article, many blog posts and more.

My award-winning book The Monster on Top of the Bed is popular with children and their parents. Check it out on Amazon.com or Goodreads.com.

My passion is to motivate people, particularly children, to learn to love to read and write.
