Writing Poetry in the style of Frank O’Hara
June 6 @ 6:30 pm$49.00
Frank O’Hara ignored the poetic rules of his time and wrote with uninhibited play of the imagination, generous emotions, and ordinary events. He saw poetry as something living, not academic. His style opened up poetry for generations to come. Like us, he juggled the contradictory components of modern life. Come study his work, attempt his style, and expand your own poetry. In this workshop we will read some of his work, discuss it and be inspired to write our own poems.
