Online Workshop: Poetic Forms


Workshop: Poetic Forms Number of Sessions: 6 Weeks Start Date: 11/13/2017 End Date: 12/18/2017 Start Time: N/A End Time: N/A Location: Online Level(s): All Levels Price: 270 Description: In this workshop, we’ll explore why form is relevant for contemporary poets, and how we can take advantage of form to strengthen both traditional and free-verse poems. Poetic form isn’t just meter and rhyme--it encompasses a diverse range of vessels that poems can inhabit. Form can help focus our poems, and reinforce a tone beyond our written words. When we have writer’s block, form can give us direction on how to keep writing. Over the six weeks of this workshop, we’ll write in several forms, and explore what content works well with different types of forms.
