Rabbi David Zaslow teaches poetry

Folks who want to write poetry or hone their poetry writing skills are in for a treat this spring. Rabbi David Zaslow is teaching a seven-session workshop at the Havurah Synagogue in Ashland. Not only is Zaslow a whip smart, inspiring teacher, he had years of experience working as a full-time poet-in-the-schools, funded by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts in the 1970’s. During that period, he also wrote and edited books of poetry, language arts textbooks and teacher’s guides. Along with poet Lawson Inada and composer Patti Moran McCoy, he was awarded an American Book Award in 1988 for educational materials.

Zaslow’s love of language shines through in his work, and he has an easy approachable manner. A poetry writing class with him is sure to be a delightful and enriching experience. Each class will offer students a chance to write and the option to share their work in a warm and safe space.

The seven classes are Tuesdays, 7-8:30, April 21- through April 28, May 5 through May 26, and June 2. Class is $155.00, with a $15 discount for registration before April 15.

To pre-register or for more information call (541) 488-1716.

The Havurah Shir Hadash is located at 185 N. Mountain Ave.
