What are poems, and how do they work? Writers of all experience levels are more than welcome to join Poetry 101, a six-week workshop designed to explore those questions. Each week, we’ll look at examples of form, sound, imagery, figurative language, and other poetic devices that have beguiled readers and writers for centuries. There will be plenty of time to generate and share work. By the end, you’ll have a handful of new poems and a deeper appreciation for the obvious-yet-mysterious strategies that animate the most exciting writing
This is a 6-week workshop that will meet from 6:30 – 8:30 on the following Tuesdays:
- April 14th
- April 21st
- April 28th
- May 5th
- May 12th
- May 19th
