There is a poet within all of us, and what a joy to be able to put the poetry that’s in our hearts onto the page. In this class, we will create vivid, concrete, accessible poetry that you will be proud to share with the world. We will explore the heart of the poem and find its emotional core. Discover how to use all the wonderful rhetorical devices, such as metaphor, simile, alliteration, repetition, rhyme, rhythm, form, and imagery that make poetry profound and exciting. Explore techniques both sublime and supreme to create poems that evoke emotion in the reader. We will learn how to take big ideas and chisel them down into sculpted verses that leave a lasting impression. Join us and discover your inner poet!
Registration begins in August. Seating is limited.
