Derived from the Greek poisis “making,” poetry is a craft in which words are building blocks. Often rhythmic, just as often not, poetry stirs our emotions. BARN offers opportunities to find poetry in nature, to create art inspired by poetry, and to read your poetry to others. Our Poetry Toolbox series offers guidance in everything from lines and stanzas to rhymes and repetitions.


You’re making good progress on your novel, or historical fiction, or memoir. What happens when you’re “done?” There are so many options for publishing your work – knowing what they are and where your work fits are key. BARN offers instruction in both the craft and business of writing. We can show you how to find an agent, navigate self-publishing, and understand your options in today’s publishing environment.
