Poetry's economy of language and use of powerful images offers creative, succinct points of divergence for writers of all genres. This class will focus on specific poetic tools such as rhythm, repetition and alliteration to seed, deepen, and refine new and in-progress writing. We will study 3-5 poems and essays that engage poetic techniques and generate new material to incorporate into a current project or begin a new one.
From novice to rising novelist, to seasoned, successful writers and screenwriters, this workshop will provide a broad spectrum of perspectives on poetry’s richness as foundation, catalyst and lively companion. Participants are asked to have a copy of a favorite poem to work with.
