Sonnets and Villanelles II

Loading Events

If you’ve taken the Sonnet or Villanelle Intensives, or worked on sonnets and villanelles before, here’s an opportunity to build on your knowledge and skills. With the help of a widely published author of sonnets and villanelles, you’ll further explore how rhyme, meter, and “received forms” can deepen your writing. We’ll also consider how revising your poems can strengthen them. NOTE: This new online course includes the use of video or sound files, weekly writing and revision assignments, and feedback from the instructor as well as (optionally) from other participants.
