About the Event
W.H. Auden said, "In poetry you have a form looking for a subject and a subject looking for a form. When they come together successfully you have a poem."
Even when writing Free Verse poetry, there is an art to line endings and stanza breaks that amplify the poet's voice and message.
Practicing the forms of traditional poetry improves our skills in rhythm, word choice, line endings, and other important features of a poem's structure.
In this virtual workshop series, we will take a look at a particular poetry form to discover how and why it works.
This is a collaborative workshop that includes discussion and writing practice.
After you RSVP, you will receive a "thank you" with the zoom link information on it.
