About the Event

We all KNOW that metaphors and similes are important for poetry, we all had to learn that in high school. But they're also great for speeches and really any description you might use in life. In this workshop we'll go a little deeper than being tested on which one uses "like" or "as" and which doesn't. We'll talk about what they bring to a description, how we can make them work more effectively in what we communicate. And also, they're fun to play with and useful, too, beyond just poetry.

MATT MASON is the Nebraska State Poet and Executive Director of the Nebraska Writers Collective. He runs poetry programming for the State Department, working in Nepal, Romania, Botswana and Belarus. Mason is the recipient of a Pushcart Prize and the author of "Things We Don’t Know We Don’t Know"  and "The Baby That Ate Cincinnati."
