Poetry Workshop: Image, Meaning, and Musicality
Memory and experience often provide the raw material for a poem, but how do you shape it into art? In addition to reading and discussing poems by some of the best poets writing today, we’ll review the elements of craft that distinguish poetry from prose—form, imagery, meter, metaphor, and musicality. Assignments will include readings from the textbook and writing exercises to share in class. No previous background in literature required. Limited to 12.
