Fundamentals of Writing Poetry
May 3 : 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until May 3, 2023
Each session will follow a similar format: class will begin with a writing exercise, followed by a lecture on one of the elements of poetry. Lecture will be followed by close readings of poems that demonstrate examples of the poetic elements covered that week, and an open discussion on those readings. After discussion, during the first two weeks, students will be asked to participate in another writing exercise. For the remaining weeks, in lieu of a second writing exercise, we will have group critique of everyone’s work. The final session will consist solely of critique. Week 1: Introduction to Poetry and Sound, Week 2: Imagery, Week 3: Feeling, Tone, Diction, Week 4: Form, Part 1, Week 5: Form Part 2, Week 6: Final Revisions and Sharing.
