Poetry as Experience

Loading Events

Poetry is, in part, high emotion in language. Cultures throughout the world use poetry to share their histories, shape their stories, and express ideas in lyrical form. In this workshop, we will look at our inner language and life experiences to explore writing from personal and cultural memory. Through writing prompts and mini-lectures on craft, formal elements of poetry as well as the history of the poetry genre will be emphasized. This workshop is open to all – no previous poetry experience required.
