Poetry 101: Poetic Form and Content

February 3 @ EST 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$35

Member Price: $30
1 Session
Deadline to Register: February 2, 5 pm
Instructor: Anastasia Nikolis


Robert Frost said that free verse poetry is like playing tennis without a net. In actuality, free verse poets have to make their own net. In this workshop, we will talk about the unique way that form and content define one another in free verse poetry, and discuss how certain formal poetic attributes fit some topics better than others. The winter session’s featured poetry book is The Tradition, by Jericho Brown.

Anastasia Nikolis is a scholar, writer, and teacher. She holds a PhD in English Literature from the University of Rochester, where she focused on 20th-21st century American poetry. She currently is the Poetry Editor for the literary translation press, Open Letter Books, and teaches courses in writing, literature, and gender studies at the Rochester Institute of Technology and at St. John Fisher College. For more information, find her online at www.anastasianikolis.com and on Twitter @nikolisanastasi.
