Is Poiema Right For You?

Poiema is not for everyone. There are many writers and creative professionals looking for courses that will show them how to make a fast buck, build and email list, start a free-lance gig, or learn a new a marketing hack.

Others are looking for an automated course with downloadable video content they can consume quickly and then move on. If that’s what you are looking for, DO NOT waste your money on one of our courses.

But if you want to learn to read like a writer, think like a poet and philosopher, and wield your pen like Arthur did Excalibur, then DO NOT WAIT to register for one of our courses.

Genius is the ability to put into effect what is in your mind. There’s no other definition of it. 

-F. Scott Fitzgerald

What If I’m not a Writer?

You do not have to be a writer to profit from the Poiema course of study.

As the saying goes, “readers are leaders.” Learning to read like a writer and write like a creative professional is essentially learning the art of thinking well.

By learning these skills from the greatest minds of the past 2500 years, modern creative professionals have the potential to stand out as unique and talented in their respective fields.

See what experts like Steve Jobs and Mark Cuban have said about this kind of education.

At Poiema, you will be learning directly from the poets and philosophers of the Western tradition under the guidance of a qualified tutor.

While it’s true, strictly speaking, even the best teachers cannot produce knowledge and wisdom in a student, they can, as Socrates asserted, act as midwives to those students who are ready to give birth to their education.

The Poiema experience allows creative professionals who want to learn (e.g., they are ready to give birth) every opportunity to gain wisdom and eloquence in the skills of interpretation, communication, and motivation directly from the minds of those who have, in the most literal sense, shaped our Western civilization.
