Poetry Writing: From Form to Free Verse
July 10, 2018 @ EST 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$139
Lamenting the turn away from formal verse, Robert Frost said that free verse poetry is like playing tennis without a net. In this course, we will learn from form how to build nets in free verse. Each week we will focus on discussing a particular form of poetry (sonnets, villanelles, sestinas, etc.), concluding with free verse-learning lessons about how poets use each form differently to construct tension and drama; and we will workshop newly generated poems. Students will learn the generative value of formal constraint, and learn how to incorporate those constraints in their writing practice.
If you would like to make a request for any accommodation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 10 days prior to the event or workshop.
