Writing a postcard poem is part of a gift exchange: seeing as the first part of the gift (to the poet) & then writing/sending the poem poem to someone is the second part of the gift. We will read fine examples of postcard poems by Sean Hill, Ted Kooser, & others. We will consider the particular poetic gifts of the postcard poem. And you will try your hand at writing your own postcard poem, perhaps as the beginning of a collection, a postcard poem project.
