The folks at the University of Utah Division of Continuing Education and Lifelong Learning have scheduled “Introduction to Cowboy Poetry” for Summer Semester. Having been cancelled during Spring Semester for lack of enrollment, the course is on life support and may expire if it doesn’t thrive this time around.
For six Tuesday evenings starting May 12, the course will meet for laughs and learning at the Annex Building on the University of Utah’s main campus on Salt Lake City’s east bench. No grades. No credit. No pressure. Just useful information and good fun. We’ll study the works of master cowboy poets, living and dead, try our hands at composing a poem or two, and talk about recitation and presentation techniques. We’ll even address songwriting as it relates to poetry if the stars align properly, courtesy of Brenn Hill.
If you’re interested, or know someone who might be, information about enrollment is available at the University of Utah’s Lifelong Learning website. Don’t put it off. If you do, it may be too late. For all of us.
