Come play with words! Of all writing, Poetry is the most infinitely creative; it can break all the rules or revel in them. From free-verse to sonnets, spells to songs, Poetry is the tool that processes our ideas and experiences through imagination. Great poets will be our guides as we apply their techniques to our own inspiration. We’ll experiment using games, traditional forms and literary devices. By cultivating the more mysterious element in the alchemy of language, we’ll find magic beyond meaning. This workshop is designed for both reluctant writers looking to find joy in the subject, as well as avid writers who want to be challenged and gain new skills. Approaching writing playfully has serious results.
