Are you new to the study of poetry? Maybe you think it’s all rhyme and meter, you have a bad taste in your mouth from grade school, or you’ve always been poetry-curious but a little too afraid to try. This workshop is for you! In this mini-class, we will take a look at our own individual ideas of what poetry is (versus the industry or academy), basic foundations of poetry (line, white space, what rhyme and meter have historically been used for), and how you might redefine your own relationship to poetic writing. We will look at work by Joy Harjo, Linda Gregg, and Diane Seuss.
